Rick Doblin has committed his life to researching the use of psychedelics and marijuana to treat post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). Conventional treatments like anti-depressants are only effective for 40-60% of patients suffering from PTSD. Doblin explains the outsized toll the disorder takes on the human rights community, and recent developments that will embolden research into alternative treatments.
