Dutch Government Forms MDMA Commission; NIH Forms Psychedelics Interest Group

Psychedelic Alpha report

The Netherlands’ Minister of Health, Welfare and Sport, Ernst Kuipers, received a sixty-page report (here’s a machine translated English version of the report) on the therapeutic applications of psychedelics in early March.

In late March, OPEN Foundation reported that the Dutch government has established a State Commission to study the impact of MDMA on individuals, society and public health; including potential medical applications.

Earlier this year, the U.S. National Institutes of Health hosted the first meeting of the Psychedelic Science and Medicine Interest Group. The group will host monthly virtual meetings and aims to “foster the dissemination of knowledge through invitation of guest speakers and journal clubs”.
