About the Author

RICK DOBLIN, PhD, is the founder and executive director of Multidisciplinary Association for Psychedelic Studies (MAPS), a nonprofit research and educational organization that develops medical, legal, and cultural contexts for people to benefit from the careful uses of psychedelics and marijuana. Its current research programs include MDMA-assisted psychotherapy and medical marijuana for PTSD, ibogaine and ayahuasca therapy for drug addiction, and LSD-assisted psychotherapy for anxiety associated with advanced-stage illness. MAPS also hosts international conferences and events that bring together researchers and students from all over the world.

BRAD BURGE is director of communications and marketing for the Multidisciplinary Association for Psychedelic Studies (MAPS). His graduate work focused on the political, scientific, and cultural changes required to make illicit drugs into legitimate medicines. In 2009, he presented his work on the history of the distinction between the recreational and medical use of drugs at the Critical Legal Studies conference at the University of Leicester in the UK.

Reviews

"A refreshing change to read something that openly challenges entrenched opinions on a very contentious topic. A highly recommended read." --Peter J. Morris, alternative writer, research, and blogger

"During the decades when society has generally been barred from the careful and legal use of pure psychedelics, MAPS has supported research in the U.S. and elsewhere on the use of mindful molecules in the treatment for example, of post traumatic stress disorder and anxiety about dying from a disease such as cancer." --Craig Comstock, co-author of Sanctions for Evil: Sources of Social Destructiveness

"As psychedelics move from taboo subject to trendy topic, and as mainstream media outlets excitedly cover new psychedelic research, this collection of serious and highly readable articles is an especially wonderful gift. This is a must-have anthology for its amazing diversity and valuable content." --James Fadiman, PhD, researcher and author of The Psychedelic Explorer's Guide: Safe, Therapeutic, and Sacred Journeys

"The pages of the MAPS Bulletin have always reached out to people from all cultures and persuasions to represent psychedelics' potential for medicine, cultural development, spirituality, and personal growth. And now we have this generous smorgasbord of Bulletin pieces gathered together to be enjoyed in a single volume. What an excellent book to courageously transmit psychedelic research into tomorrow." --Ben Sessa, MD, psychiatrist and psychedelic researcher

"The varieties of psychedelic experience are boundless and beyond words, but this enlightening anthology manages to map much of that ineffable territory. Thank you, MAPS, for helping us understand the science and the spirit that support this endless journey." --Don Lattin, journalist and author of The Harvard Psychedelic Club and Distilled Spirits

"A deep, exciting collection of brilliant minds sharing research, cosmologies, humor, and imagination centered on my favorite topics: psychedelics and consciousness. Fascinating reading!"--Carolyn "Mountain Girl" Garcia, loyal member of the Merry Pranksters
