1 US MDMA/PTSD STUDY - OUR LARGEST EXPENDITURE ON RESEARCH WAS FOR ONGOING COSTS FOR MAPS’ PILOT MDMA-ASSISTED PSYCHOTHERAPY STUDY, CONDUCTED IN CHARLESTON, SOUTH CAROLINA UNDER THE DIRECTION OF DR. MICHAEL MITHOEFER AND ANN MITHOEFER BSN. THIS STUDY INVESTIGATED MDMA-ASSISTED PSYCHOTHERAPY IN SUBJECTS WITH TREATMENT-RESISTANT POSTTRAUMATIC STRESS DISORDER (PTSD). THE 21ST AND FINAL SUBJECT COMPLETED THE TWO-MONTH FOLLOW-UP IN SEPTEMBER 2008, CONCLUDING THE STUDY. OVER THE YEARS, MAPS HAS SPENT ABOUT $1.2 MILLION ON THIS STUDY. THE RESULTS OF THIS STUDY ARE SO PROMISING THAT IT WAS WORTH EVERY PENNY. WE’RE NOW EXPANDING OUR MDMA/PTSD RESEARCH TO NEW COUNTRIES AND THERAPEUTIC TEAMS, TESTING DIFFERENT PROTOCOL MODIFICATIONS THAT WILL HELP US IN THE DESIGN OF THE PHASE 3 STUDIES. IF OTHER THERAPIST TEAMS CAN GET RESULTS SIMILAR TO THE RESULTS OBTAINED BY MICHAEL AND ANN MITHOEFER, WE WILL HAVE SUFFICIENT EVIDENCE TO JUSTIFY THE PRESCRIPTION USE OF MDMA-ASSISTED PSYCHOTHERAPY. $194,779.55 $194,779.55 All
2 EROWID WEBSITE - MAPS HAS SERVED AS FISCAL SPONSOR FOR EROWID SINCE 1999. EROWID IS THE MOST POPULAR WEBSITE OFFERING INFORMATION ABOUT A WIDE RANGE OF DRUGS, VISITED BY ABOUT 50,000 UNIQUE VISITORS PER DAY. EROWID HAS NOW OBTAINED ITS OWN NON-PROFIT STATUS AND MAPS IS NO LONGER NEEDED AS A FISCAL SPONSOR. HOWEVER, SOME DONORS STILL SEND FUNDS TO MAPS OUT OF HABIT OR AS PART OF EMPLOYER MATCHING PROGRAMS THAT TAKE TIME TO CHANGE. AS A RESULT, WE STOLL RECEIVE SOME DONATIONS FOR EROWID. ASSISTING EROWID IS A SPECIAL PLEASURE SINCE THE FOUNDERS OF EROWID, EARTH AND FIRE, AND I WERE COLLEGE FRIENDS AT NEW COLLEGE OF FLORIDA. $16,268.46 $16,268.46 All
3 BURNING MAN 2008 - MAPS HANDLED FUNDS FOR ENTHEON VILLAGE 2008, WHICH WE FIRST HELPED TO CREATE AT BURNING MAN 2006, WHERE WE HELD MAPS’ 20TH ANNIVERSARY.

MAPS ORGANIZED A LECTURE SERIES ABOUT PSYCHEDELIC RESEARCH AND CULTURE AS PART OF OUR EDUCATIONAL MISSION. PARTICIPATION IN ENTHEON VILLAGE HELPED MAPS FULFILL OUR COMMUNITY OUTREACH GOALS. $171,386.87 $171,386.87 All
4 DEA UMASS AMHERST/CONGRESSIONAL SIGN-ON LETTER -THIS FISCAL YEAR, MAPS SPENT ALMOST NOTHING ON A SIGN-ON LETTER SINCE WE WERE WAITING ON DEA TO REPLY TO THE FEBRUARY 12, 2007, DEA ADMINISTRATIVE LAW JUDGE MARY ELLEN BITTNER'S FINDINGS OF FACT AND RECOMMENDATION IN THE CASE OF PROF. LYLE CRAKER. ALJ BITTNER RECOMMENDED THAT DEA ISSUE A LICENSE TO PROF. CRAKER FOR A MAPS-SPONSORED MEDICAL MARIJUANA PRODUCTION FACILITY, WHICH WOULD END THE FEDERAL MONOPOLY ON THE SUPPLY OF MARIJUANA LEGAL FOR RESEARCH. THE LICENSING OF PROF. CRAKER WOULD CATALYZE A SERIOUS DRUG DEVELOPMENT RESEARCH PROGRAM, WHICH IS WHAT DEA IS SEEKING TO PREVENT. AFTER THE ALJ RULING, MAPS INITIATED A MAJOR EFFORT TO EDUCATE MEMBERS OF THE US HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES ABOUT ALJ BITTNER’S RECOMMENDATION. WE OBTAINED SIGNATURES OF 45 CONGRESSIONAL REPRESENTATIVES ON A LETTER TO DEA URGING IT TO ACCEPT ALJ BITTNER’S RECOMMENDATION. WE ALSO OBTAINED WRITTEN SUPPORT FROM SENATORS KENNEDY AND KERRY, WHO SENT A LETTER TO DEA URGING IT TO ACCEPT ALJ BITTNER’S RECOMMENDATION .ON JANUARY 14, 2009, DEA ISSUED WHAT IT HOPED WAS A FINAL RULING REJECTING ALJ BITTNER’S RECOMMENDATION. HOWEVER, DEA CITED NEW EVIDENCE TO JUSTIFY ITS REJECTION, EVIDENCE THAT WAS MISLEADING OR IN ERROR AND WHICH HAD NOT BEEN REVIEWED BY PROF. CRAKER'S LEGAL TEAM. AS A RESULT, PROF. CRAKER'S LAWYERS HAVE FILED A SERIES OF REQUESTS FOR RECONSIDERATION, DELAYING DEA'S FINAL ORDER FROM GOING INTO EFFECT. THERE IS A REASONABLE CHANCE THAT DEA UNDER AN OBAMA ADMINISTRATION WILL PUT SCIENCE FIRST AND ISSUE PROF. CRAKER HIS LICENSE. AS OF SEPTEMBER 2009, PRES. OBAMA HAS NOT YET NOMINIATED NEW LEADERSHIP FOR THE DEA, WHICH IS STILL RUN BY BUSH ADMINISTRATION HOLDOVERS. IF NEW LEADERSHIP IS APPOINTED AND DECIDES TO ACCEPT ALJ BITTNER'S RECOMMENDATION, THE CONTROVERSY OVER THE MEDICAL USE OF MARIJUANA WILL BE DECIDED BY THE OUTCOME OF FDA-SANCTIONED RESEARCH. FUNDS FOR OUR CONGRESSIONAL EDUCATIONAL CAMPAIGN WERE DONATED TO MAPS BY BOARD MEMBER JOHN GILMORE. $70.35 $70.35 All

SHE CONTINUED THIS ONGOING REVIEW THROUGHOUT FY 08-09. WHEN APPLYING TO THE FDA AND INSTITUTIONAL REVIEW BOARDS WITH A NEW PROTOCOL, IT IS NECESSARY TO HAVE A COMPREHENSIVE REVIEW OF ALL FACTORS RELATED TO RISK. THIS LITERATURE REVIEW IS BECOMING LESS EXPENSIVE EACH YEAR DUE TO THE RELATIVELY SETTLED STATE OF THE ART OF MDMA RESEARCH, WITH NEW RESEARCH GENERATING RELATIVELY FEW CHANGES IN THE RISK-BENEFIT ESTIMATES. $3,343.20 $3,343.20 All

27 ISRAEL MEDICAL MARIJUANA PRODUCTION FACILITY - THE ISRAELI MINISTRY OF HEALTH HAS ESTABLISHED A POLICY WHEREBY PHYSICIANS WHOSE PATIENTS HAVE ANY OF A CERTAIN LIMITED NUMBER OF CLINICAL CONDITIONS CAN APPLY TO THE MINISTRY REQUESTING THAT THEIR PATIENT RECEIVE A LICENSE TO USE MARIJUANA LEGALLY. SINCE THERE WAS NO LEGAL SUPPLY OF MARIJUANA IN ISRAEL, THE MINISTRY OF HEALTH DECIDED TO ISSUE SEVERAL LICENSES TO PRODUCE MARIJUANA FOR MINISTRY-APPROVED PATIENTS. THE LICENSE DOES NOT PERMIT THE PRODUCER TO SELL THE MARIJUANA, THUS IT REQUIRES THAT THE MARIJUANA BE GIVEN AWAY FOR FREE. THE PRODUCERS MUST OBTAIN DONATIONS TO COVER THEIR COSTS. DAVID BRONNER DONATED FUNDS TO MAPS TO HELP SUBSIDIZE THE COSTS OF SEVERAL GROWERS. OVER TIME, AS MORE PATIENTS ARE APPROVED AND OBTAIN MEDICAL BENEFITS, WE THINK THE MINISTRY MAY RECONSIDER THE POLICY OF FREE DISTRIBUTION AND PERMIT SALES WHICH WOULD THEN BE A SUSTAINABLE MODEL.
