Observing the mainstream media become more willing to provide an objective viewpoint on the topic of psychedelic medicine. I believe MAPS has been instrumental in this process.

I was introduced to MAPS about five years ago and I have been a supporter of their work ever since. The are a group of committed individuals doing work on behalf of many marginalized and suffering people around the world. I give MAPS my strongest support.

MAPS is supporting an initiative to ensure that clinical trials with MDMA will once again be possible in Canda. I believe this is vital work. Go MAPS!

I believe in MAPS and the vision and directive of the people behind this organization. To live to see the day when these life changing medicines are accepted and applied in the way that MAPS promotes will allow me to die a happy man!

I truly and unequivacally believe in both the work that MAPS does and the way they go about it. Rick Doblin, their founder, is an inspiration to me in my own life, in the way he has applied gentle yet unyielding pressure to the powers that stand in the way of truth and justice. Rick Doblin and MAPS are true representatives of the Peaceful Warrior. I also appreciate MAPS embrace of the entirety of the psychedelic community. It would be much easier to only embrace the less controversial research side only.

At Burning Man in 2006 I had the pleasure of residing in the MAPS CAMP and was very impressed by the powerful sessions and speakers that MAPS brought to the event.

MAPS is doing the extremely important research that will possibly help shift humanity into a new consciousness and out of the mess we've created. All this while at the same time constantly fighting obsolete and uninformed government regulations.

The misunderstandings surrounding the entirety of the psychedelic community have been rampant since the media got involved in the sixties. MAPS is not only helping clear the fog in terms of public perception of the nature of the fantastic chemical entities known as psychedelics, but they are indeed actively involved in the progressive practice of supporting active research into the clinical utility thereof. Thus, my appreciation of these noble activities is my impetus for support of this great organization.

The Great!

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

Albert Hoffmann's (public) 100th birthday celebration (LSD conference in Basel Jan 2006), at which I initially decided to personally commit to supporting the organization.

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

The work they do.

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

Employ full time, a PhD synthetic organic chemist who could synthesize new and underutilized psychedelics. Employment of a chemist would also allow means for an ample supply of any drug needed for clinical testing.

In my Masters class in Paradigms of Consciousness, we were asked to monitor the media for evidence of a shift from a Cartesian worldview to Perennial Philosophy. The New York Times highlighted the San Jose MAPS conference on Page A1, citing the use of hallucinogens to help depressed cancer patients face death and find meaning in life. My professor, who has had personal experience with ayahuasca, was impressed by my paper.

It brings tears to my eyes that finally after centuries of global ignorance, apathy and fear regarding psychedelic medicines a group of people stands up and believes that we as humanity have an obligation to educate ourselves about all the possibilities that science and nature have delivered us. And that includes psychedelics! Helping people who suffer mentally or psychically by giving them these medicines is love and compassion in its purest form. I wish my father had known MAPS before he died of cancer.

I have followed the work of MAPS since its inception and admire their tenacity and how much they have accomplished on a very small budget. No other organization focuses like they do on this important area of medicine.

Review from Guidestar

MAPS performs a service for society that no other organization does. When I was an undergrad in the early 1980's I immersed myself in all the research literature which looked at the possibilities using psychotropic substances for treating mental illness, for enhancing creativity and for spiritual exploration. I wanted to continue at the graduate level, but I could not find any graduate psych programs that would support my efforts. By 1986, the year that MAPS was founded, I had given up my dream of pursuing a career in psychedelic research. My graduate studies went in a different direction. I never looked back, that is until around 2004 when I discovered MAPS. I have been a proud member ever since, supporting their efforts to advance the use of these substances for the benefit of humanity.

The Great!
