Noble readers. As the holiday season hurls inexorably into the realm of your physical experience, are you at a loss for a meaningful way to contribute to the Greater Good? Well look no further. Multidisciplinary Association for Psychedelic Studies (MAPS) needs you. Consider gifting a donation in the name of your neighbor or your beloved. Your generous contribution will not only fill your soul with the true Holiday Spirit, it will aid in essential research on the healing potentials of psychedelics and marijuana.

In these tumultuous times of economic confusion, contributions from MAPS members are lower than ever. Donations are essential in enabling MAPS to forge ahead in its 15 year mission to create legal contexts for, and educate the public in, the beneficial uses of psychedelics and marijuana. Your contribution can assist the University of Arizona, Tucson study investigating the use of psilocybin in the treatment of obsessive/compulsive disorder (OCD). Or maybe you'd rather help with the 5 year Russian study of ketamine in the treatment of heroin addiction. Delight in the history you made when learning that on November 2, 2001, the FDA approved MAPS' protocol for the use of MDMA assisted psychotherapy in the treatment of post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).

Help MAPS in its publication of books such as "Drawing it Out: Befriending the Unconscious" by Sherana Harriette Frances. This Contemporary Woman's Psychedelic Journey documents in text and drawings the author's experiences in the early 1960's as a subject of LSD creativity research. This would make an excellent gift for that aging Baby Boomer you hold so close and dear.

Timothy Leary is gone. And with the recent passings of Ken Kesey and George Harrison, the ebb of the psychedelic era is upon us. Help keep the flow alive by becoming a MAPS member today. I don't know about you, but I'm sick and tired of Joe Public being the guinea pig for poorly researched pharmaceuticals (ala Fen-Phen) to benefit government subsidized corporations. Let's not overlook the value of the tried and true illegal substances of yor.

Over.  End of Story.  Go home now.
