Recording: How to Study the Government's "Most Dangerous" Drugs?, Mar 12, 2023

How to study the Government’s “most dangerous” drugs? Obtaining a DEA license to manufacture any drugs in schedule one is a difficult challenge. Very few people in the US have been able to crack the code except large pharmaceutical companies and rare other for-profit entities. In this session Dr. Sisley and colleagues will outline the process for gaining federal approvals to cultivate or synthesize drugs in schedule one, classified by the government as the most dangerous and most addictive. It is urgent we seek to open access to MDMA- and psilocybin-assisted therapy for Veterans and other trauma victims who are at serious risk of suicide and have exhausted all other options.

1000s of Veterans/first responders who nearly lost all hope after struggling through (sometimes double digit) ineffective medications and therapies – which often left them worse off than where they started – are forced to seek plant medicines and other psychedelics on the illicit market. But there are methods to apply for a DEA Schedule 1 manufacturing license independently.
