While I am a fan of Strassman's work, and of the principle of informed consent, Strassman's research involved injecting people with a powerful psychedelic (DMT) in an institutional setting. A survey, essentially asking questions and receiving answers, in no way should be seen as requiring the type of formal paperwork and review as a study like Strassman's. A survey is simply a survey or information gathering exercise people will voluntarily contribute to. I don't understand why you think any sort of consent form is necessary here=E2=80=93people who provide data are doing so willingly, and the researchers are not responsible for their well-being.
