The fact that mj grows naturally is NOT a good reason to argue for it's safety vs. MDMA. First off, there are several things growing from the earth that are bad for human consumption (poisonous plants, pork, etc.). Also, mj has to be processed/dried before it's smoked - so it's not quite as "natural" as it's made out to be. It's not like you pick it from a garden and roll it right into a blunt. 2nd, MDMA is synthesized from from sassafras oil (from a tree). So, it too grows from the ground, so to speak.

Just saying...
