Chill, discreet psychedelic experimentation group?
August 7, 2014 10:13 PM Subscribe
I've been interested in psychedelics for a while, for recreation as well as the experience and potential introspective and worldview-altering effects. I haven't known anyone who's touched anything psychedelic or hallucinogenic, except maybe cannabis, since college. I would like to find a group supportive of responsible psychedelic drug use. Do such things exist in major cities, and how do I find them?

In the past, I have experimented with different strains of cannabis and small, safe doses of MDMA on my own. I'd really like to be introduced to a wider variety of experiences by people who know what they're doing, in a supportive environment, with a responsible sitter.
To be vague, I've recently moved to the metro area of a city with population about 400,000, 2-hours' drive from a major "liberal-heavy" city of 700,000 where I'd most expect to find these sort of people. An unexplained day trip alone to that city is generally not possible, given the questions it would raise back home, on top of being pretty far from where I'd consider "safe".
Are there Meetup euphemisms employed for experimentation groups, something like "spiritual" or "introspective", dancing around the details? Are there grey-net (or even darknet) sites for finding people to do this with?
I guess the crux of my question is: how does one get started trying out potentially dangerous (in the sense of the risk of a bad trip) substances in a safe environment?
