“I’m now prepared to bet that one of the classic Hallucinogens (psilocybin, LSD, mescaline) or one of the Entactogens (MDMA or MDE) will be an FDA-approved medicine before this decade is out. I wouldn’t have made that bet five years ago.” – Mark Kleiman, Ph.D., Professor of Public Policy, UCLA, and Editor of the Journal of Drug Policy Analysis

MAPS Bulletin Vol xx No 3: Winter 2010 - Inside Front Cover Image - Psychedelic Art - The Shulgin’s and Their Alchemical Angels by Alex Grey
“The Shulgin’s and Their Alchemical Angels” by Alex Grey. Limited Edition of 50 Gicleés, 15x22.” $1500 to $3500, depending on print number. Proceeds are split between MAPS and the Chapel of Sacred Mirrors. Purchase online at http://www.maps.org. Alex Grey portrays Sasha Shulgin holding an MDMA molecule that has a fiery warm glow and angels wings. His wife Anne touches the molecule and gazes into the light. Around them radiate molecular symbols, Sasha’s “dirty pictures.” Above them two flaming wings with eyes, bare the words “PIHKAL” on one and “TIHKAL” on the other. An alchemical flask hovers above Sasha’s head with a symbolic “eye of the heart” angel inside the lab vessel.
