1. Dear Drugs-Forum readers: We are a small non-profit that runs one of the most read drug information & addiction help websites in the world. We serve over 4 million readers per month, and have costs like all popular websites: servers, hosting, licenses and software. To protect our independence we do not run ads. We take no government funds. We run on donations which average $25. If everyone reading this would donate $5 then this fund raiser would be done in an hour. If Drugs-Forum is useful to you, take one minute to keep it online another year by donating whatever you can today. Donations are currently not sufficient to pay our bills and keep the site up. Your help is most welcome. Thank you.

    An event called Exploring Consciousness will be happening in Bath, England from Thurs 24th - Sat 26th June, 9am - 5.30pm.

    A list of confirmed presenters is given below, their names and backgrounds speak for themselves. Over half will be giving presentations on psychedelics and the rest covering equally stimulating and wide ranging topics. There will be ample time between sessions to connect with presenters and fellow
    attendees. Among other intentions we plan also to make the most of the evenings.

    The very reasonable ticket prices are: Full 3 days £115 if booked before March 31st, £130 thereafter

    Has there going to be anything like this in the UK again or anything similar to that thereof. SWIM is very interested in this type of thing and wondered whether anyone had any contact information.

    That's awesome. I would love to be a fly on the wall there. I look forward to the days where I have cash for travel and can attend events like these. I'm always hearing about similar conferences lately it seems...one of these days...
