98 - Rick Doblin (MAPS)

In 1972, Rick decided to dedicate his life to bringing psychedelics out of the shadows and into laboratories and clinicians' offices. His path has included a PhD from Harvard's Kennedy School of Government, and the founding of the Multidisciplinary Association for Psychedelic Studies (MAPS). In recent years, Rick's persistence has started paying off—to the benefit of thousands of people whose suffering can be alleviated by these powerful, sacred substances. MAPS has funded research involving MDMA-assisted psychotherapy for terminal cancer patients, victims of sexual abuse, and veterans suffering from PTSD—among many other applications.  Download. Visit MAPS.
