Study the Traditions. I decided to pursue another degree after law school to deepen my understanding of the legal systems impacting religious practice with the hopes of utilizing that knowledge to change things for the better. Beginning at Georgetown, I have been working on exploring the possibilities for socially beneficial partnerships involving tax exempt organizations, tax laws that impact religious communities, and examining the impact of regulatory agencies and policies with respect to entheogenic religious practices. As I transition to the next stage of my journey, I am eager to share all that I have gained from this experience and work with my fellow PBA members and beyond to help usher in a fair and just future for psychedelic practices.
