MAPS published our first email newsletter in 2003, and since then a lot has changed! The psychedelic community has grown exponentially, psychedelic research is being conducted by many groups around the world, and the ways we get information online today would be unrecognizable to someone in 2003.
On the 20-year anniversary of the MAPS newsletter we think it’s time for a new approach. We know that subscribers like you want fresh psychedelic news, more often. Starting today, your MAPS Newsletter will be easier to read and delivered more frequently. We hope you like it — and are eager to hear your feedback in an upcoming survey!
For over 35 years, the MAPS community has led the quest for psychedelic research, reform, and education. Our whole team is excited to be involving you, our readers and supporters, even more deeply in this work as we enter a new phase in the psychedelic revolution.
