I joined the Psychedelic Bar Association to support a movement that holds significant promise to help many people heal and thrive, yet remains entwined with various existing systems that sometimes incentivize the opposite. I’ve developed familiarity with some relevant systems through 1) my current work as an attorney at a boutique law firm representing startups and investors on employment, privacy, and financing matters, and 2) my past work as a biglaw IP litigator and as a policy analyst for the World Health Organization and the American Association for the Advancement in Science. I aspire to “be curious, not judgmental” about what we can shift together through this forum.
I am teaching a course on psychedelic policy that explores the history of psychedelic prohibition, current legal frameworks, indigenous reciprocity, the North Star principles, intellectual property disputes, market structures, and future policy directions.
