Hi Plemole,

Thank you for using Just Answer. Under Title 21, United States Code, Section 812(c), ecstasy, or MDMA, is a schedule I controlled substance, which means that the federal government has deemed that it has no medicinal value and a high potential for abuse. 21 U.S.C. 844 prohibits the simple possession of controlled substances. However, 300 pills would probably not be considered simple possession - more likely, it would be subject to the harsher penalties for possession with intent to distribute.
