    About the Ayahuasca Defense Fund (ADF)

    The Ayahuasca Defense Fund (ADF) is an ICEERS program dedicated to addressing the challenges presented by the growing criminalization of practices with ayahuasca and other teacher plants. The ADF’s work is supported by a Steering Committee and Expert Committees made up of drug policy experts, lawyers, legal strategists and renowned academics.

    What we offer

    LEGAL DEFENSE
    We believe that the prosecution of ethical and responsible practices is an injustice. The Ayahuasca Defense Fund works with defendants worldwide to assure the best legal defense.

    EDUCATION & PROTECTION
    In a time of confusion and misinformation about ayahuasca legality, the ADF aims to become a useful expert resource for legal clarity and protection.

    POLICY REFORM
    The Ayahuasca Defense Fund engages with policy makers, law enforcement authorities and all relevant actors to work towards sensible, human-rights based public policy.
