Who is the NCPPC?
Welcome to the North Carolina Psychedelic Policy Coalition! We are a diverse group of dedicated individuals working together to support policies that promote research and responsible expanded access to psychedelic medicines in our state. We believe that by joining forces, we can help shape the future of psychedelic policy not just in North Carolina, but nationwide.

The Need for Psychedelic Medicines in North Carolina
Our state is grappling with worsening mental health, increasing chronic pain, and escalating rates of overdose and suicide. Conventional treatments aren't providing relief for many North Carolinians. Emerging research from renowned universities is revealing that psychedelic substances like psilocybin and MDMA can be life-changing and life-saving when other treatments fail.
Bipartisan Support for Psychedelic Policy
In an era of hyper-partisan conflicts, expanding research on psychedelic-assisted therapies is a rare issue that unites Republicans and Democrats. Recognized as "Breakthrough Therapies" by the FDA, these treatments offer new hope for groups disproportionately impacted by trauma, such as veterans facing a tragic daily rate of at least 17 suicide deaths (CDC, 2022).
The Breakthrough Therapies Research and Advisory Act
This bipartisan bill, H.B. 727, sponsored by three Republicans: Sasser, Chesser, Goodwin, and one Democrat: Autry, will allocate $5.4M to support two breakthrough therapy studies in North Carolina, focusing on depression and PTSD. It will also establish an Advisory Board of experts to provide recommendations and report on the state's research studies.
