I think one can get reasonable MD results without going to quantum
chemistry. The paper from PNAS abot pi-cation interactions (I expect
this is the study of this phenomenon) shows good correlation between
force-field energy and HF/6-31G** energy for such interactions taken
from known protein structures. In MM calculations these interactions
are treated as electrostatic interactions between cation and negatlively
charged carbon atoms of aromatic ring. Such interaction energies are
