  • [Inspirationional music]

  • [Albert Garcia-Romeu] Because of the long hiatus in psychedelic research, there's a lot we don't know

  • about how they can be used to help people, and at this point, now that we're actually turning around

  • and looking at these substances with a fresh eye, I think that there's a lot of benefit that we're finding,

  • whether it be producing mystical experiences, helping ease end-of-life anxiety for people

  • who are near death, or in the treatment of addiction or depression, there's a lot of potential uses that

  • have really yet to be explored in a scientific way, and so it... we think that it's worth looking at.

  • [Amanda Feilding] The research being carried out is starting to bear valuable fruit,

  • not only in our understanding of brain function and consciousness, but, very importantly,

  • also in terms of new clinical applications.

  • [Android Jones] If there's any realm that we should really be the master of that domain,

  • it should be the expiration of our own individual consciousness.

  • [Erad Ayal] This is my first psychedelic science conference. It's been quite an experience.

  • There's a ton of people here. I love that it's, you know, university professors and, you know,

  • people that I might have met at Burning Man, all in the same place at the same time.

  • [Tanya Hollo] This is my first time at MAPS conference.

  • I'm really interested in psychedelic research.

  • [Randal Roberts] There's a shared desire to do something positive, more than just

  • canned food dropped off. People are doing something positive with maybe their whole life,

  • or they're fiercely dedicated to something that would be accentuated by being here

  • and meeting people and learning more. So, I think there's a lot of smiles

  • and a lot of kind, intelligent people here.

  • [Allison van Nostran] I've just been really impressed and really struck by

  • the depth and breadth of research that IS taking place.

  • [Don Lattin] They really are committed to the scientific method and legitimate research,

  • and they are VERY careful, and a lot of the leading researchers are VERY cautious

  • about who they select for... to be research subjects, and I think that's really important.

  • [Rick Doblin] This conference is bigger than any other conference we've ever organized.

  • [Equipment thumping]

  • Having community [?] together really was the reason why the conference was such a success.

  • [Jones] It's always great to see an evolution and an increase in attendence,

  • seeing the certain tracks/tracts [?] change and grow.

  • [Doblin] I think what's been more developed here is the opportunities for people

  • to speak with each other. [Equipment thumping.] We've set up more spaces, we've set up

  • more time for that. Right now in the market [?] place here, it's going till 2 in the morning or something,

  • so there's lots of time for people to talk to each other.

  • [Wistful piano music]

  • [van Nostran] I mean there's just... there's a lot of really amazing things happening out there.

  • [Hollo] I'm particularly interested in mental health

  • and addiction, and there's a lot of information here about that.

  • [Lattin] Bill Wilson, who's the founder of Alcoholics Anonymous, who did a lot of research

  • and personal experimentation with LSD in the 1950s, long after he sobered up, thinking that the LSD

  • could be used to help alcoholics have the spiritual experience that's so important in a 12-step program.

  • [Garcia-Romeu] Right now, I am helping to complete a pilot study which is

  • for helping people quit smoking cigarettes using psilocybin and some combination

  • of cognitive behavioral therapy.

  • I feel the Hopkins approach is successful as a result of combining a caring team of researchers

  • with a comprehensive support system in conjunction with the psilocybin sessions.

  • None of those three components would be as effective if used individually. Truths are simplified,

  • issues become transparent and manageable, lifestyle needs become more self-evident.

  • Your individual beyond [?] is expanded.

  • As of right now, our results for the smoking study seem to show that psilocybin can be very useful

  • in helping people quit smoking, and so why would that not be something to investigate?

  • [Doblin] These aren't just recreational tools, but these are therapeutic tools and spiritual tools

  • that have been used for thousands of years.

  • [Joe Tafur] Traditional ayahuasca ceremony offers an opportunity for rapid limbic revision,

  • resulting in profound healing, likely in part through epigenetic revision in the limbic system

  • and related structures and beyond.

  • [Hollo] I think that psychedelics are one way of achieving a state of mind that is achievable

  • through other paths, although the other paths aren't necessarily an option in our society,

  • especially for people who are severely addicted or severely mentally ill. It's not realistic to ask them

  • to sit and meditate for as long as they need to meditate for... to get to that place. Psychedelics provide

  • a realistic option for helping people reach those places to allow that shift in perspective

  • that can help them re... - help us, help me - reevaluate my life and move forward.

  • [Gabor Mate] Mainstream medicine is one particular perspective that has a lot to offer,

  • both in the treatment of chronic and acute illness, but which also seriously fails

  • to understand human beings, to know how to encourage healing inside a human being.

  • We separate the mind from the body. We're not very good at dealing with the healing

  • of chronic conditions at all. And if you don't know how to cut it out, burn it, or poison it,

  • we don't know what to do with it. The issue of alternative medicine is one of language.

  • The first question we have to ask is, "Alternative to what?" Because when you say "alternative medicine"

  • or "complementary medicine", we're making the assumption that mainstream medicine is somehow

  • the valid or accepted way to do it and everything else is an alternative to it.

  • Actually, it's much more complicated than that.

  • [van Nostran] My passion is really kind of reframing the conversation around psychedelics

  • and trying to encourage people, especially young people, to be able to speak articulately

  • and compellingly about what's going on with psychedelics.

  • [Daniel Jabbour] The Psychedelic Society of San Francisco is an organization that we started

  • a little over a year and a half ago. Actually, at the MAPS conference was our first meeting,

  • and there were just 30 people there, and now we're up to almost 4000 people

  • across our various social networks. And we host lectures, film screenings, discussions,

  • to bring together people to talk about psychedelics in a more educational context.

  • [Devon Tackels] SSDP is an international network of students who are fighting back

  • against the counterproductive war on drugs. The SSDP essentially empowers youth members

  • to get involved within the political environment to advocate for sensible alternatives

  • to drug prohibition. In a time of an alcohol or drug overdose emergency, students are hesitating

  • to call the police or paramedics out of fear of their friend getting in trouble or arrested

  • or maybe kicked out of school, or themselves as well. So, we advocate for good Samaritan,

  • also known as medical amnesty, policies that remove that hesitation factor by removing

  • the academic punishments associated with making that call.

  • [Eyal] Right now I'm working on a project to find an ethnobotanist or an anthropologist

  • that's familiar with psychedelic science, and present what's happening

  • at the psychedelic science conference to the world, really let people that have never heard

  • of ayahuasca before into this fascinating world of culture, different tribal rituals, the science,

  • the fMRI, all of that.

  • [Roberts] The legitimate research of psychedelics is important, and there's always an increasing sense

  • that we will pop through and maybe do it, maybe do something right as a culture.

  • [Jones] Art is really the only way to encapsulate and to share the experience of visionary realms

  • that we have available. You know, we can't take cameras and recording devices into our visions,

  • and so we are kind of at the mercy of the visionary artist or artists that have chosen

  • this particular, strange, creative career path.

  • [Roberts] Some glimpse an... a spiritual truth, and make it accessible for everyone, despite their

  • language or background. With enough legalized psychedelic use, enough openmindedness

  • on the psychological front, that we could actually break through to a permanent, peaceful,

  • human solution, at least this is keeping us afloat, these studies keep us afloat, and keeping it

  • on a legitimate, scientific discussion table is so important, or Marlboro will buy everything,

  • and everything else will be destroyed. We have to have that edge.

  • [Doblin] The founding of MAPS, for me, was kind of astonishing, and so, in order to do that,

  • you kind of have to recognize that the system isn't entirely corrupt and that there are ways in which...

  • I mean, part of this is to admit that it actually has some value. You know, I wasn't sure if it'd ever work.

  • You know, I just knew that it was something worth striving for. And the fact that we would be

  • having meetings at the Pentagon, that we would be on... already working with veterans,

  • that we would have LSD studies and MDMA studies and ibogaine studies and ayahuasca studies

  • in published magazines and have conferences with so many people... So, I never thought

  • the challenges would be so great, but at the same time the tools are increasing.

  • [Mate] In terms of discussing publicly the potential benefits of psychoactive substances -

  • psychedelic substances - we mustn't be evangelists, we mustn't be trying to convince anybody.

  • We will... it's not a cause. It's simply a great potential modality for helping a whole lot of people.

  • So, we need to present the evidence for it seriously and humbly, and we have to expect

  • that some people will be drawn to that, some people will not be. And we have to be clear

  • that it isn't the past [?] here, that we are not offering here the solutions to the problems of the world

  • or the healing of every ill person on the planet. All we're saying is, "Here's a modality that has

  • a lot of research behind it, has a lot of human experience behind it, that has proved to be

  • transformationally healing for many people. Why exclude it from the conversation?"

  • [Hopeful music]

  • [Feilding] Reforming global drug policy and re-basing it on scientific evidence rather than

  • on ideology and panic is so important for improving human well-being.

  • [Music fades]
