MP3s of Rick Doblin

Rick Doblin, founder and president of the Multidisciplinary Association for Psychedelic Studies (MAPS)     Rick Doblin is founder and president of the Multidisciplinary Association for Psychedelic Studies, a non-profit membership-based research and educational organization that sponsors clinical studies designed to obtain FDA approval for the use of MDMA as a prescription medicine. He received his undergraduate degree from the small, idiosyncratic, and highly-respected New College in Florida. He obtained his Ph.D. in Public Policy from the Kennedy School of Government at Harvard University with a dissertation focused on the regulation of the medical use of psychedelics and marijuana. He served on the NORML board of directors from 1996 to 2004.

where you will also find many links to his books and essays.]

     Doblin's Ph.D. dissertation was on "The Regulation of the Medical Use of Psychedelics and Marijuana." (PDF file) His master's (Harvard) focused on the attitudes and experiences of oncologists concerning the medical use of marijuana. His undergraduate thesis (New College of Florida) was a twenty-five year follow-up to the classic Good Friday Experiment which evaluated the potential of psychedelic drugs to catalyze religious experiences. Doblin has also studied with Dr. Stan Grof and was in the first group to become certified as holotropic breathwork practitioners. His professional goal is to help develop legal contexts for the beneficial uses of psychedelics and marijuana, primarily as prescription medicines but also for personal growth for otherwise "healthy" people, and to also become a legally licensed psychedelic therapist.
