Founded in 1986, MAPS is an IRS approved 501 (c)(3) nonprofit corporation funded by tax deductible donations. MAPS is focused primarily on assisting scientists to conduct human studies to generate essential information about the risks and psychotherapeutic benefits of MDMA, other psychedelics, and marijuana, with the goal of eventually gaining government approval for their medical uses. Interested parties wishing to copy any portion of this publication are encouraged to do so and are kindly requested to credit MAPS and include our address.
