Alexander Shulgin

Has had a stroke. If you don't know who he is, you probably don't care. If you do know who he is, please also know that he has never made any money from his work, which has (debatably by some) improved the lives of many people.

Writer, with his wife Ann, of PIHKAL and TIHKAL. He is the person who popularised MDMA, which is now once again being researched as a therapeutic aid for those with PTSD. He has synthesised over 200 psychoactive compounds. He has improved my own life through his work. And he looks kind of like my Dad.

Because he does not do his work for profit, the Shulgins are not rich, and stroke recovery is expensive. They need help. I donate to fuck all, but I donated to this. Please, if you can't/won't donate yourself, spread the word to those who can/will.
