Today we feature the 2017 Palenque Norte Lecture delivered by the founder of the Multidisciplinary Association of Psychedelic Studies, Rick Doblin. In this wide ranging talk, besides an update about the recent FDA approval for MAPS’ major Phase 3 study of MDMA, we are treated to the fascinating story of how Rick was able to convince his conservative family into supporting his decision to pursue the investigation of psychedelic medicines.
“What I intimated in my early LSD and mescaline sessions, they weren’t all beautiful and peaceful and, you know, unity with god. They more were like taking a very ridged intellectual person and helping me to start to feel, and helping me have emotions, and helping me to start to wrestle with some deeper emotions.” -Rick Doblin
