DEA… a psychedelic plant, and a controversy… at Miami University
“Instead of placing arbitrary restrictions on conservatory holdings, we should be making sure that conservatories are sensibly and knowledgeably curated,” Executive Director of the American Anthropological Assiciation, Ed Liebow said.
Since it’s not feasible for every researcher to travel to West Africa, Liebow said the most suitable approach was to establish conservatories where key specimens can be studied and preserved for future work … “This is not just ivory tower research for research sake; the potential payoffs in terms of cultural heritage preservation and sustainable tropical forest practices are substantive,” Liebow said. “We all lose when misunderstandings lead to the imposition of arbitrary limits on scholarly inquiry that can help protect threatened cultural heritage and the environmental conditions that sustain its preservation.”
