If each of them donated an average of U$ 1 for this cause, they would match all of GDs transfers in 2017
fwiw I think it’s very hard to get people to donate to things.
From section 4(b) of the OP: “Roughly $40 million has been committed to psychedelic research since 2000.”
True, but people are already competing to invest in THC providers. Why wouldn’t they do it for psychedelics?
I think there will be psychedelic for-profit ventures & investment. (That’s a different claim than the claim that there’s already enough donor dollars in the space.)
My current view is that almost all of the for-profit investment that comes into the space will flow through highly suboptimal structures (e.g. pharma companies trying to achieve frivolous patents that give them a monopoly – this is already happening with esketamine).
Savvy philanthropic work could help push us out of that regime & towards a better one.
