Dear Mason,

MAPS is a proud co-host of the 2011 International Drug Policy Reform

I'd like to pass along the following message from our friends at the

This year's conference features a special session on the place of
psychedelics in science, medicine, and public policy. MAPS staff and
associates will be speaking and in attendance at the event. We look
forward to seeing you there.

It's truly an exciting year for psychedelic and medical marijuana
research and education. Thank you for all your support over the past
25 years, and for the 25 years to come.

reform right now. Add your voice to the mix – and register to attend
