MDMA is funded by people who want to legalize it for recreational 
use. Unfortunately, there is no one who wants to use ibo 
recreationally, and NIDA won't because of the Joyce Nalepka's of the 
world, so it just isn't happening.

A lot of legalizers are offended by ibogaine, like John Morgan or 
Stanton Peele, because they don't believe addictions exist.
