Graham Boyd

General Counsel


In 2017, Graham co-founded the Psychedelic Science Funders Collaborative, a nonprofit community of philanthropists dedicated to the understanding that psychedelic medicine has the potential to make an enormous impact and has an achievable path to regulatory approval, but has been systemically underfunded. PSFC supports research on and clinical trials of physician-prescribed psychedelic medicines and patient access to these treatments.

Graham is also the founding director of New Approach PAC, through which he has led the opinion research, legal drafting and campaign design for cannabis and other drug policy reform measures throughout the United States. Since 2010, he has led an ongoing opinion research project on voter views about cannabis reform, creating a data set that has guided political strategy and messaging on these issues. He also advises the leading group of philanthropists who support cannabis reform nationally.

Previously, Graham was the founding director of the national ACLU’s Drug Law Reform Project, a national litigation project addressing civil rights and civil liberties consequences of punitive drug policies.
