An interesting conversation with Dr. Ken Alper about the history of the illegality of Ibogaine beginning in the 1960s.

On the other hand, regardless of the Farnsworth article indicating that
ibogaine was scheduled by the FDA by at least 1968, the attached article by
Sullivan indicates that the NY state police were aware of ibogaine by 1967.

Also attached is a 1994 newspaper story on the Drug War. According to that
story, the entire NIDA medications development budget in the ibogaine
project era was 22 million, relative to a total Drug war expenditure of 13
billion.
