Ibogaine activist Dana Beal on his arrest for pot trafficking: ‘I’m just trying to complete my mission’

For decades, Beal has been a proponent of ibogaine, a substance, derived from an African shrub, that’s been illegal in the U.S. since 1969 because of its hallucinogenic properties. Beal considers it a superior cure for addiction to heroin and other hard drugs.

He said he has received “donations in the form of marijuana” to create ibogaine clinics in Afghanistan in recent years and claims to have raised $15,000 because of his fame as a leader of the Global Million Marijuana March held every year around the world on May 1. “They tried to say I was like Al Capone with a machine gun,” he said indignantly in a telephone conversation with B+B, referring to Colleen Murray, the deputy district attorney of Trinity County who is prosecuting his case. “They were trying to make me out to be a common criminal out for short term gain and no higher purpose.” He added: “I’m just trying to complete my mission to bring ibogaine to the world.”
