More news on the subject of research: on august 27th 2010 the DEA, an American government organisation in charge of the laws regarding ‘controlled substances’ in the US, has approved a study regarding the effects of MDMA on war veterans suffering from post-traumatic stress syndrome. MAPS can go ahead with the research, which will cost $500,000 and will take the good part of two years. Most of the budget still has to be found, but it’s a step in the right direction!
On the OPEN conference (october 23/24) you can hear more about these kinds of studies. Click here for more information.
