Rick Doblin – “Psychedelics: Mystical Experiences, Cultural Evolution, Non-Profit MDMA/PTSD Research, and Burning Man”

Rick Doblin, the co-founder and CEO of the Multidisciplinary Association for Psychedelic Studies (MAPS, www.maps.org) discusses:
– The FDA-approved research into the use of MDMA-assisted psychotherapy for Post-traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) in veterans and survivors of sexual abuse, rape, accidents and other traumas
– What role psychedelics can play in generating mystical experiences and the political implications of those experiences for cultural evolution
– How MAPS will market MDMA as a prescription medicine (projected to start in 2021), train therapists/psychiatrists, establish a network of psychedelic clinics, and provide psychedelic harm reduction services at Burning Man and festivals and venues around the world
