organized a conference to recognize the Gabonese experience in the United States and the celebration

range of subjects related to Science, Health, politics and business. While most of the two hundred
participants were familiar with the Bwiti religon and its sacrament Iboga, very few were familiar
with ibogaine science. The conference organizers invited Howard Lotsof, the discoverer of
ibogaine's antiaddictive effects to present that information. The PowerPoint slide show is available
