    The ADF is a program of ICEERS that is dedicated to shaping a world in which ayahuasca and other traditional psychoactive plants can be used legally and safely. The ADF unites state-of-the-art legal, scientific, community, and public policy expertise.

    The ICEERS Ayahuasca Defense Fund (ADF) helps people who have been arrested by uniting state-of-the-art legal, scientific, community, and public policy expertise. In addition to providing educational information to prevent legal incidents, we promote best practices and sensible policy that respects indigenous cultural heritage and human rights.
    The ICEERS Ayahuasca Defense Fund (ADF) was initiated in 2016 in response to the growing criminalization of ayahuasca and other psychoactive plants worldwide. This program is supported by an Advisory Committee and an international network of experts.Thanks to support from the international community, we’ve worked with over 100 defendants and their legal teams in 27 countries, transcending ignorance and prejudice with facts, and promoting cultural and human rights. We’ve educated judges, lawyers, ambassadors, diplomats, government officials with results. This support has led to many positive legal outcomes.

    In the words of someone we supported: “The ADF Team educated me how to protect my religious civil rights and walked these steps with me with great dedication and full commitment. They were the wealth of advice and the guiding force to my legal defense attorney.”

    We need to create policies and norms where plants are treated with respect and where the original peoples who have stewarded them for generations receive the acknowledgement and support that is needed now more than ever.
