We envision a world where psychedelics are safely and legally available for beneficial uses, and where research is governed by rigorous scientific evaluation of their risks and benefits. Research into the beneficial potential of psychedelics again being conducted under federal guidelines, but no funding for this research is yet available from governments, for-profit pharmaceutical companies, or major foundations. That means that the future of psychedelic and marijuana research depends on individual donors and family foundations. Please consider making a donation today.
