The Tampa Psychedelic Society aims to connect individuals in the greater Tampa area who have an interest in psychedelic substances. In creating a space for these individuals to come together, we seek to nurture productive dialogues about the utility of psychedelics for various purposes. Our hope is through repeated in-person interactions, the Tampa Psychedelic Society will foster a community-wide conversation about the growing importance of psychedelics.
Do you have an interest or curiosity in psychedelics?
After 40+ years of misinformation, propaganda, and destructive prohibition, psychedelic substances are undergoing a re-emergence in our cultural zeitgeist.
This phenomena has occurred in two primary spheres:
1. Research for issues like PTSD, depression, addiction, and anxiety.
2. Within start-up and entrepreneurial circles
In starting the Tampa Psychedelic Society, we plan to create a space for individuals in the greater Tampa area to come together to discuss various aspects of the psychedelic experience. Specifically, we aim to give individuals a platform to discuss how these experiences have contributed to transformations in their personal and professional lives.
Our future meet-ups will focus on various aspects of psychedelia, including:
Talks from various leaders within the psychedelic sphere - including researchers, writers, entrepreneurs, and policy makers.
Stories from meet-up attendees about their personal psychedelic experiences
Informal discussions about topics like a post-prohibition world, microdosing, the role of psychedelics in catalyzing social change, and much more
Viewings of documentaries and discussions of psychedelic-related books
We invite you to join us for these meetings. Whether you’re an experienced psychonaut or an individual who is simply curious about learning more, the Tampa Psychedelic Society will be a space for you to build community with other psychedelic users.
Discussion of psychedelic substances is protected under the First Amendment. Any individual who attempts to solicit illicit substances will be asked to leave, and permanently barred from attending future events. This includes discussions around how to obtain illegal substances, accessing drug marketplaces such as the “dark web” or others, and cultivating natural-source psychedelics such as magic mushrooms. This type of behavior at meetups threatens our ability to speak freely on the therapeutic use of psychedelics and will not be tolerated.
Also, in creating a space for all individuals, we encourage discretion when discussing events with other people in the community. Please do not use names of individuals who speak about their personal experiences unless explicit permission is granted. Due to the cultural stigma still attached to psychedelic substances, it is challenging enough for people to speak openly about their personal experiences.
