MAPS has been an invaluable organization for me and for the world wide community who feel that psychedelic substances must be researched in a medical/meaningful way rather than simply shunned out of existence. MAPS has also helped me to distribute my film, "LSD: Problem Child and Wonder Drug," providing a way in which people like Dr. Albert Hofmann (discoverer of LSD and highly respected medical/pharmaceutical researcher) might influence the public debate on psychedelics in a way which makes us all realize how important such medical research is. As a media presence as well as a fund raising engine for medical research, MAPS has played a unique and important role in the world.
