@But in 2003, Private Eye found something much more damning. In 2001, Hari wrote of celebrating his Cambridge graduation "with a few tabs of Ecstasy" and praising "the Ecstasy I know and love".
Whether he took "E" or not I have no idea, however I have taken plenty in my earlier 20's and generally I would call them tabs too, despite them being pills and tabs being more relevant to Acid.
"Hey dude what did you do last night?"
"Took a couple tabs of E man, dayum they were good"
Nothing unusual there, perhaps being a little to demonic in your evaluations of drug terminology?
Anon for obvious reasons.
