"U.S. District Court Judge William H. Pauley III on Friday rejected the federal sentencing guideline for MDMA, or Ecstasy, ruling that the guideline was based on outdated science and punished ecstasy-related crimes far more harshly than was justified. ... The American Civil Liberties Union presented the federal judge with scientific evidence from expert witnesses during a two-day hearing in December, claiming that the sentencing guidelines were flawed."
