Can a hallucinogen from Africa cure addiction?
Ibogaine, a hallucinagen derived from a variety of plants has been used for centuries by tribes in Gabon and Cameroon and, in 1962, scientists found the drug to be uncannily effective at treating even the toughest addictions but it quickly fell out of favor of more conventional treatments.

The BBC takes a fascinating and in-depth look at Ibogaine, and the legal and medical controversies surrounding it. [BBC]
