On June 17th, 1971, Richard Nixon launched the so-called "War on Drugs." Now, 47 years later a new generation of psychedelic users are taking the lead to end it. Working in solidarity with the communities most affected, today's new psychedelic advocates bring the lessons of the past four decades of reform activism to bear in calling for rational drug policies that protect both civil and human rights.
In this episode we speak to Ashley Booth, founder of the Aware Project: Rethinking Psychedelics, a Southern California-based psychedelic society, producing a monthly speaker series around psychedelics as medicines and transformational tools. She is also the co-founder of InnerSpace Integration, a psychedelic integration organization with a team of support providers serving the growing community. Currently, she works part-time as the study coordinator for the Los Angeles Phase III clinical trial of MDMA-assisted psychotherapy for the treatment of PTSD funded by the Multidisciplinary Association for Psychedelic Studies (MAPS.org).
