Review for Multidisciplinary Association For Psychedelic Studies, Santa Cruz, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

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.

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

honesty in presenting controversial information about prohibited mind-altering substances, with compelling scientific research into beneficial effects on human beings in need.

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

genuinely and deeply involved in their mission.

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

co-ordinate scientific research worldwide from Afghanistan to Czechoslovakia.

Ways to make it better...

I were a subject participating in a research project.

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

breaking through all the prohibitions spawned by the "Drug War".

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

this is a great little review process you've devised to honor serious effective organizations. Thank you.
