US MDMA/PTSD Veterans Study Begins:
MAPS News Update
October 14, 2010

Dear MAPS Members and Supporters,

We have a lot of great news to share with you this month. There has been major progress with our clinical research ­– our US MDMA/PTSD veterans study has officially started, our ibogaine/opiate dependence outcome study has enrolled its first subjects, our LSD/end-of-life anxiety study has enrolled two new subjects, the study design for our marijuana/PTSD research has been finalized, and a whole lot more has taken place since our last email update. Details about all of our accomplishments are below.

This month we have kicked off a campaign to gain hundreds of
new MAPS members by the end the year. A total of 5,226 people have been MAPS members since our inception in 1986. Our goal is to add another 524 members by December 31, 2010, to reach a total of 5,750 people who have ever become members.

If you aren’t yet a MAPS member, please
become a member today. As an added bonus, the next 200 new members who sign up will have their donation magnified by a generous donor who will give an additional $25 gift to MAPS.

All MAPS members receive our tri-annual Bulletin. Signing up today will ensure you receive a copy of the Bulletin we are preparing for December. If you can donate more than $60, you can choose one of several MAPS published books as a free premium gift.

There are several more ways for you to participate with MAPS.  We could use your support with our efforts to end the federal government’s monopoly on the supply of marijuana for research.
You can help out by visiting our medical marijuana production facility campaign page and contacting your senators.

Are you interested in meeting us at an event? We have events coming up in
Denver, Boulder, Los Angeles, and Oakland. MAPS’ Executive Director Rick Doblin, Ph.D., will be speaking at the Science and Nonduality conference in San Rafael, CA this month, and heading down under to Australia to speak at the Entheogenesis Australis in December. MAPS’ Clinical Research Associate Berra Yazar_Klosinski, Ph.D., will be speaking at the Women’s Visionary Congress in Petaluma in a few weeks. Details about these and other ways for you to be involved are in the news items below.

If you aren’t yet a member, there is
no better time than now to become one. If you are a member, please encourage your friends to support our work. Together, we can keep changing our world.
