MAPS is a wonderful organization that should be part of every medical research center. The mind is the most powerful portion of a human, why wouldn’t we be doing everything possible to unlock the mysteries of that extraordinary part of existence. Psychedelics are the catalyst that clarifies consciousness thinking. Done in a proper setting, the psychedelic experience will be life changing in a positive way while rising up awareness and understanding of life’s natural path to harmony. I know that consciousness expansion is a must, and should be at the top subject of the media, government, churches, schools, and in the community. Let’s keep supporting MAPS and other foundations like it to keep doing all the beautiful research and putting these psychedelics in the main stream. If everyone could understand the medical and life enhancement implications of these substances, it shouldn’t be too hard to get them to the public………….RIGHT ! Once the media, government, churches, schools, and community start educating and putting psychedelics on the top priority list then we can see massive change in this world. Thank you MAPS for getting us closer and closer every day.

it's pretty clear that we can't rely on Big Pharma to design safe medicines that work--lying about results, cheating on FDA approvals, making drugs with side effects worse than the disease--so MAPS is stepping up to do so. the fact that the clinical trials and conferences they designs, funds, and otherwise supports are on drugs that have been the subject of cultural and political repression for years only compounds the importance of what they're doing. MAPS has the technical know-how, the political savvy, and the guts to change how medicine is made.

I've always been interested in alternative ways to raise people's consciousness as well as being able to heal them through psychedelic modalities. The work that was started years ago in the psychedelic field, has now reached a new plateau with MAPS. Rick and company have expertly and responsibly paved the way to opening new vistas through the continuing research, medical applications, and awareness of psychedelics.

The Great!

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

The large numbers of people who attended the conference in April 2010 was a clear indicator that MAPS was, well, on the map!

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

being on the pulse of a history-changing movement to educate and help people through responsible uses of psychedelics.

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

professional, helpful, and knowledgeable.

Just at the moment i sit at my Mac, at home in Switzerland/Bern writing a homework for my study in Psychotherapy about PTSD-therapy. Because there is also one MDMA/PTSD Study in Switzerland sponsored by maps, i use this site for getting all my information i need. I honour the work of MAPS for their enthusiasm and professionality in proceeding all the work which is needed to become psychoactives useful and legal medicine. In my profession as therapist i see many people suffering on their illnesses not finding a way to their inner being. I think, MDMA used in a professional kind of therapy is a powerful instrument for finding out of a problem related world into a self regulated one by recognizing one's own responsibility. And this by a way no other regular psychopharmaka supported therapy can afford.

The Great!

Ways to make it better...

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

translate all the contents of MAPS in all languages of the world.

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

their enthusiasm and their professionality

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

...all open hearted!

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

become a bit more known in the outback of the world and then even get another ten million for their work, because more people would make more donations instead of wasting their money for unuseful things.

Ways to make it better...

the site was in german ;-)

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

legalisation of psychedelics for professional use.

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

MAPS brings FACTS.

I have been a memeber of MAPS for 9 years. My experience is absolutely positive. This is a unique organization that promotes scientific research in the neglected and stigmatised area of psychedelics. I believe this area of research may prove very beneficial for promotion of mental health.

The Great!

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

getting access to data of its research projects.

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.

participating and volunteering in their conference, "Psychedelic Science in the 21st Century" in San Jose, CA April 2010. The work of MAPS touches my life daily as I read about more and more studies approved by the FDA for MAPS to conduct.

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.

More feedback...

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.

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.
