Bonnie Scott has been an advocate for reform of drug policy since the early 1990s. She first heard of ibogaine from Dana Beal and Doug Greene in New York City, and even got to meet Howard Lotsof through them. She saw the importance of including ibogaine in libertarian outreach and education efforts related to drug policy, so she attended the 1999 conference on ibogaine at NYU to learn more. After hearing Vermont’s Governor Shumlin dedicate his entire 2013 “State of the State” speech to opioid use in their rural state, she founded “Vermonters for Ibogaine Research” and is working on getting a bill through the Vermont legislature to allow providers to apply to run a Schedule One-compliant clinic in Vermont that blends modern safety protocols with the traditional insight that has helped so many people. Bonnie is the Vice Chair of the Vermont Libertarian Party, and tries to juggle political activism between a full-time job and homeschooling her seven-year-old.
