It was just another cannabis filled night full of laughter with my friends when insomnia started to set in. Since my start of lsd, my mood [swings] were in the highest of highs. The only way to describe my ongoing euphoria is as either an awakened super ego or nirvana brought on by ego death. Here's the kicker. I only "tripped" acid 5 times total. I had all the fun I needed with MDMA alone at the techno houses. Sometimes I would just smoke weed while all my friends tripped, and we all still had great times. But somehow, I was the one that had the nervous breakdown during a bad trip. My brain chemistry must've been doing something. It brought out that I have Manic Bi-Polar disorder on top of a "polysubstance abuse dependence." But I'm only addicted to weed and cigarettes. And am never depressed, but now have to take 300mgs of Lithium every day.

Maps is doing research in a very important field, a field which has been kept out of academic science for quite a while only for sheer financial and pseudo-moral interests, i appreciate the way in which maps is working very much, thanks.

MAPS is a wonderful organization that is brave enough to explore areas that are still considered taboo by many. Hopefully through the work they do and the kind support of many good people, this will not always be the case.

MAPS is on the front lines, exploring the global potential of human consciousness for public good. For 25 years, their visionary efforts have been put toward designing scientific research to explore therapeutic treatments for addiction, PTSD, terminal illness, end of life trauma and spiritual transformation. MAPS funds clinical trials with human subjects and publishes regular updates in an online newsletter in accordance with FDA and European Medicine Agency Guidelines, regarding MDMA, Ibogaine, LSD, cannabis. MAPS' integrity & vision make it unique.

MAPS serves as an organization to fund unbiased research for psychedelic drugs, educate the public on its findings and influence public policy. Through steadfast dedication and stellar work, MAPS is helping to put unique and effective psychiatric tools back in the hands of doctors to use with their patients. The group of researchers and advocates involved with this organization are some of the most brilliant minds I've ever encountered.

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

Being allowed to conduct a scientific experiment in a laboratory with a Schedule I drug, with DEA clearance.

I'll do a lot of volunteer fo Camp Spirit Lake. One of the them is to make sure thaht people remember a detention camp of First world war in Abitibi, Quebec, Canada. Since 1998, i worked to establish Historical interpretation center about East European immigrant that were unfairly interned because they didn't possess official paper and were considered dangerous for the security of Canada. This year will open the Historical Interpretation Center. Just look at this website: campspiritlake.ca Next, i'm a volounteer in an organization that is very implicated in archeological digging in Abitibi: Archeo-08. Right, we work with Algonguin to hep them to recover a part of their past. For, it's always been important to look at the past. So, i always be there give a hand.

This is an organization that offers valuable information taken from reliable and respected sources and delivers it to the general public as well as health practitioners and other professionals. MAPS is really stepping out of the box and bringing a controversial topic that has great benefits to the public in a very professional and respected way.

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

how approachable and professional the staff is at MAPS.

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

very friendly and intelligent people interested in learning how to create a better life for themselves through their mental, emotional, physical and spiritual health.

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

pay for more research to further legitimize its findings and help pay for the education of others who cannot afford to attend these events otherwise.

Review from Guidestar

I have been aware of maps for 15 years and I feel that they have been instrumental in re legimitizing the use of psychedelic compounds in medicine and psychiatry. Thier work, research, and funding studies domestically and abroad has been a gift to science and humanity as a whole. Thier publishings are very informative and professionally put together.

The Great!

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

very positive interviews with people who have PTSD(mostly veterans), Muscular Dystrophy, end of life anxiety, and chemical addiction treatment who have been helped by this organizations mission statement.
