The Intellectual Gentlemens Club Interviews Brad Burge of MAPS

Listen to the interview here. Jason and Matt Abbott Talk with Brad Burge of MAPS (Multidisciplinary Association for Psychedelic Studies) in Santa Cruz, CA. MAPS is a non-profit, private donation funded organization. We discuss how MAPS takes legal avenues for studies of controlled substances. They envision a world where psychedelics and marijuana are safely and legally available for beneficial uses, and where research is governed by rigorous scientific evaluation of their risks and benefits. They believe in respectful, honest, and forthright transparency of the research they perform. We cover MDMA and PTSD, LSD and end-of-life, Psilocybin, Ibogaine, Ayahuasca, and Marijuana risks and benefits, as well as the general misunderstandings, ignorance, disinformation, and propagandizing of the substances themselves. We hope you can come to the conversation with an open mind. The Intellectual Gentlemen’s Club interviews Brad Burge of MAPS about innovative medical treatments developed from psychedelic research, the obstacles surrounding medical marijuana research, and MAPS’ mission.
