Harvard Law School is launching the country’s first-ever research initiative centered on the law and psychedelics in hopes of helping shape regulation as more cities and states decriminalize their use.

The Project of Psychedelics Law and Regulation—dubbed POPLAR—is a three-year initiative housed under Harvard Law’s Petrie-Flom Center for Health Law Policy, Biotechnology, and Bioethics. It is partially funded by the Saisei Foundation, a Texas-based nonprofit established by Tim Ferriss, a well-known investor, entrepreneur and podcaster with an interest in psychedelics research.
