Links for Thinkers
The World Wide Web is an entity that makes possible the dissemination of unpopular or underfunded information. Drug information in the public sphere heretofore has been dominated by mass media with an interest in fanning the flames of fear on television and in the newspapers. More thoughtful discussion was marginalized. Places like the Well’s Drug conference sprung up as a refuge. Here are some other sites that come recommended by Well Drug conference habitues.
Heffter Research Institute
An effort to create a full time research facility devoted to impartial research on psychedelic substances.
Multidisciplinary Association for Psychedelic Studies
