MAPS goes on where the research of the 60's ended. I think by now it is quite clear that psychedelics have huge potentials for psychology and personal development that can be of great beneficience to mankind, and they're doing the science, finding out how to cure people with it. Truly great people!

MAPS can be considered the main 'culprit' responsible for the resurge in interest in psychedelics research. This research was stopped due to a global ban on most psychoactive substances in the 60's, while experimental research had shown great potential in a wide variety of disciplines (medicine, psychology, addiction research, anthropology, philosophy and many more). For this alone, I cannot thank MAPS enough. Psychedelic substances are slowly getting back their place in the academic field, where they belong.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

the increase in professional interest in psychedelics, on an academic level. Scientific results, evidence-based objective data are the best way of showing that these substances are not a danger to society, but a possible solution to some of its problems.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

start funding experimental research in different countries around the world and help setting up researches for scientists that can't get funding elsewhere.

I recently attended and volunteered at the MAPS-sponsored conference "Psychedelic Science in the 21st Century." It was an honor and a privilege to share in this powerful congregation of minds and ideas. The experience of being there has had a lasting impact on my life, and provided me with the momentum I was seeking to change my life for the better. I am forever grateful to MAPS for promoting psychedelic research and for providing a safe and welcoming space for such research and revolution to occur.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

my daily life. My outlook is brighter because it is fueled by the hope that MAPS provides. The people I met and connections I've made through MAPS have shaped my actions in the present. I have even considered working for the organization myself.

Being a low income student, I can only afford to donate to a few organizations each year. MAPS has consistently been number 1 on my list. I completely support their pioneering research into the development of psychedelic drugs and marijuana into generic drugs available at pharmacies with a doctor's prescription. MAPS is helping to improve the lives many suffering people around the world using treatments that are well recognized in many cultures, but often demonized in the United States. I will continue to educate people about psychedelics and spread awareness about the great work of MAPS.

Maps has initiated and developed the fundamental and critical research and promotion for advocating the most important and valuable of medicinal and therapeutic tools. That is, the beneficial and productive use of marijuana, ecstasy, LSD and mushrooms. I encourage you to learn more about MAPS its social-political and medical movement. They are truly the frontiers of a bright and amazing future.

MAPS has almost single-handedly--with patience, commitment, persistence, scholarship, unassailable research, compassion, and a perspective that manages to convey a scientific, spiritual, psychological, cultural, and communal equanimity--rebooted the Western understanding of the healing potential of entheogenic substances for all varieties of individual and social dis-eases. Their work has brought psychedelic therapy back into a mainstream imagination as a feasible, safe, and effective means of both physical and spiritual healing--and how this healing contributes to the global healing we so desperately need. Their archives afford laymen and professionals alike with accurate, nonsensationalized information. And their faith in the work they do lends a rare, even quotidian authenticity to their claims. They exclude no one and do not engage in negative campaigning or accusations, but rather patiently and consistently offer their results to the public. They are, in my opinion, one of the most important leaders in working toward global healing, interpersonal and international peace, more love in the world, and I trust them unequivocally and am intensely grateful for their devotion, the risks they take, and the hard work they do. Thank you MAPS!

MAPS is an extremely effective public policy organization that brings together credible scientists and policymakers around a topic about which everyone holds strong, often skewed views. They shine the light of research to assist members of the public make up their own minds based on data, not prejudice. Policymakers would be well suited if they could find other organizations willing to provide credible research for their assertions. It would change the public dialectic.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Creating policy change around medical cannabis and supporting community based research.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Help them to contribute more resources to less organized, less well-funded and experienced groups who have similar agendas.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

The experienced, knoweldgable and decent people who are members of this organization, working on their various public policy agendas.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

Fantastic.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

put substance abuse into a public health model, rather than primarily an issue for law enforcement.

Ways to make it better...

I had been able to spend more time learning more and experiencing their organization.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

They are working with a very challenging subject - changing public opinion about drugs that have often been abused and are frequently demonized by those with a fear-mongering agenda.

One thing I'd also say is that...

These folks have my vote. They take good scientists and turn them into great leaders.

If you take an honest look at society as a whole there's a few gigantic problems hindering our progress as a species. MAPS is addressing one of those problems proactively everyday; the drug war, our understanding of drugs and how they work on the mind, and to cure the social stigma associated with psychedelics. The task which MAPS has undertaken is ambitious and needs our support. Breaking through the social stigma about substances commonly associated with old pagan cultures and ritualistic tribal use in today's pharmaceutical society is difficult but the potential benefits to mankind are vast and MAPS understands there's more to good health than a companies profit margin. With our support and a little luck, MAPS may change the face of medicine including the treatment of PTSD in our US Armed Forces in the next decade.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Honestly, I don't feel like bootlicking for this charity. They deserve to be an entire bureau of the health dept. They deserve to have a center wherein to implement newly theorized therapuetic techniques and be allowed space to grow psychedelics and have a school and retreat center. They deserve justice, quite frankly, and I don't think that 5000$ it going to give it to them, to give to us, the community. However, I believe wholeheartedly that Mr. Doblin and his intrepid staff are capable of using even a small 5000 grant toward that goal efficiently and practically so I guess this is not bootlicking. Yes, by all means give it to them, and help them get more.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

sanjay gupta endorses hallucinogens because rick doblin made the news again, that shot alone must have shaved off ten years from the date when hallucinogens will become medicinally available.
