    This is just a quick reminder that the cancer anxiety study with psilocybin at the Johns Hopkins School of Medicine in Baltimore is still recruiting participants.

    - This is a legitimate study.
    - Participants need to be able to travel to Baltimore several times.
    - The study budget does not cover travel expenses as this time.
    - A cancer diagnosis is required

    Here's some information from the study's Web site:

    We are seeking volunteers with a diagnosis of cancer to participate in a scientific study of states of consciousness brought about by psilocybin, and their impact on psychological distress and spirituality.

    The study is conducted in a comfortable and supportive setting, Volunteers enrolled in the study will receive careful preparation and two sessions in which they will receive psilocybin. Structured and professional guidance will be provided during the session and afterwards to facilitate integration of the experiences.

    After each session, questionnaires and interviews will be used to assess the effects of the psilocybin on consciousness, mood, and behavior

    If you would like to volunteer, or just have questions, please contact us and ask for Mary:

    Thanks for the notice. I'll check in with Alpha. I don't think I'm breaking the rules because this is not my study. I'm not trying to contact anyone in this forum directly to gather information. I'm just pointing them to a source of information. I appreciate the heads-up. I definitely don't want to disturb the peace in here!

    No big deal....Just make sure to contact Alfa. I was assuming it was your study or a study you were involved with due to your use of words such as

    Mary is their study coordinator. I just lifted that from the study Web site. I also sent a note to Alpha.

    I'm the research associate for the psilocybin study at Harbor-UCLA that concluded in 2008. The findings paper is going through peer-review now, and I think there's a chance that we'll get published in a prestigious journal. I'll let Drugs-Forum know when we know. There will be a lot of media around it.

    Also, do you think everyone in here is aware of the National Geographic Explorer episode that's going to be airing on Nov. 3 (10 pm)? I'd send you the link to the Web page where you can see video clips, but I'm afraid this message will get dinged if I do. You can google "Inside LSD" to get more info.

    Happy Halloween!
