Sasha Shulgin, father of Ecstasy, needs help

Sasha Shulgin is one of the pioneers of psychedelic medicine. As a chemist for DOW, he characterized MDMA (ecstasy), and a host of related drugs (at great cost to his career). In addition to its popularity as a recreational drug, MDMA has shown great promise as a treatment for intractable post-traumatic stress disorder. Given its great therapeutic potential, many believe it should not have been made a Schedule I drug.

Sasha recently suffered a stroke. He and his wife Ann are not rich, and they're struggling to pay their medical bills.

If you have found MDMA valuable in your life, you may wish to consider donating to their medical care fund:
