Changed serotonin agonist back to serotonin releaser, because 4MTA is a serotonin releaser, not a serotonin agonist. Research suggests that it releases serotonin both by increasing vesicle trafficking and by reversing the direction of the 5HTT reuptake transporter. Also added onto the stimulants template and removed it from the hallucinogens one, as this compounds profile is more typical of a serotonergic/noradrenergic stimulant, and it is not known for having hallucinogenic effects.

Apparently 4-MTA abuse has lead to deaths - see Nature 469, 7 (2011).
