It had to happen at some point……
Toronto’s Field Trip (CSE: FTRP) has brought Sen. Tom Daschle, one of the longest-serving Senate Democratic leaders in history, on board as a special adviser to the company. CEO Joseph del Moral said the company will benefit from three decades of experience working on public policy.
Why he’s joining: The South Dakota native said the global mental health crisis — made worse by Covid-19 — means there’s a “urgent need” for psychedelic assisted therapy.
“There is a paradigm shift underway in our understanding about the role that psychedelics can play in the field of mental health and well-being,” he said, “being primarily driven by scientists that are dedicating their time and energy to studying and understanding these molecules.”
Sen. Daschle will receive a stipend and options consistent with what members of the board receive.
