They discuss how MAPS takes legal avenues for studies of controlled substances. They envision a world where psychedelics and marijuana are safely and legally available for beneficial uses, and where research is governed by rigorous scientific evaluation of their risks and benefits. They currently have an Indiegogo campaign for legalizing psychedelic medicine.

MAPS is currently raising funds for Phase 3 clinical trials of MDMA-assisted psychotherapy for PTSD and people can learn more at www.maps.org.
