Business Trip, a podcast about psychedelic entrepreneurship
Welcome back to Business Trip, a podcast about psychedelic entrepreneurship! 🍄
In this week’s episode, we chat with Matt Zorn, an attorney at Yetter Coleman. Matt has expertise in DEA law, especially regarding psychedelics. Matt is currently challenging the DEA’s decision to schedule 5 new tryptamines, he recently argued Kathryn Tucker’s psilocybin “Right To Try” case against the DEA, and previously co-led Sue Sisley’s DEA case related to cannabis scheduling and research. He also writes the drug policy newsletter On Drugs.
In this episode, we discuss:
How psychedelic companies operate according with FDA and DEA guidelines
What psychedelic companies can do to increase their chance of approval
How drug scheduling works
Matt’s views about classic psychedelics vs. new chemical entities
