“Why Psychedelics Matter”
This talk will explore twenty years of research experience and will examine historical and contemporary contexts of psychedelic use, the significance of medical research in revealing the potential for therapeutic use and the need for reducing harm among non-clinical users.
Over the past twenty years Dr. Grob has conducted approved clinical research investigations of MDMA, ayahuasca and psilocybin, and he has published extensively in the psychiatric and neuroscience literatures on the range of effects and implications of psychedelics.
