Hey everyone, whenever I hear people talk about treatments with ibogaine and see the dismissive attitude, I can get a little frustrated. I really hope more research goes into it because some people treat it as though it is a ‘get out of jail free’ card. It is important that you have to do this outside of the country, because it would be far better to have this available locally…because it does work.

I would much rather have people actually study what it does and integrate that information rather than assume that it either works out of the blue or that it would be dangerous. I think that we need to focus on alternative treatments because the stigma of addiction continues to prevail within our society – we need all the help we can get.

I completely agree. However, that's a long ways off I think. The reality is, MDMA is just starting to get footing in the USA as a clinical medicine, and I don't think it is completely approved but it seems to be close.

Then it's probably going to be LSD or psilocybin...maybe ketamine. I mean all of those are showing huge promise but the reality is, the jump from MDMA to LSD is probably HUGE. People's views on LSD are very negative in my opinion. Sure, if you run around psychonaut or psychedelic sites you may not think that's true, but the reality is that's just a small, small portion of the USA.

But I do think the new generation of youth are much more open to this stuff. Even most millennials think the war on drugs is stupid republican or democrat. So the future is promising. However, for Ibogaine, it's probably a long way off!
