Dear Rick,

Why do I continue to do this? See the attached photocopies of two items from the local newsletter next week. First day: a front page story with color photo of a local pot bust using high-tech, infra-red heat sensing, gestapo equipment. The following day an editorial endorsing more of the same and equating marijuana with violence to rationalize continued and ever more… When I read stuff like this I get so very angry, and depressed. There are so many other things our taxes could be used for …

But, why let that negative energy burn me out? Instead, you and MAPS allow me an opportunity to put it to good use. That, added to what I believe about the role of psychedelics as an evolutionary catalyst is why I welcome the opportunity to be of any assistance to the MAPS agenda, and is why I keep on. Thank you for letting me be a part of it!
