For several years, the people responsible for TLConscious have been involved in harm reduction work through online information, in situ work, education, and drug analysis in festivals and events, and presentations at international research conferences.
One of our main projects is a combination of analyzing psychoactive substances and their adulterants, and educating people to help reduce the risks of consuming these substances. While we can work directly with people in some cases, such as music festivals and similar events, we are unable to reach the millions of people around the world that do not attend these particular events and are therefore unable to make use of our work. This means that many of these people might be unknowingly poisoning themselves with unknown adulterants, or consuming plants that contain toxic substances.
We have developed a substance testing kit that anyone, even those with no scientific background, can use in the privacy of their own home. This kit allows a person to analyze the composition of any substances or plants they have and check for contaminants or adulterations. Our kit is NOT like the simple colorimetric reagents found around the world, which can only indicate the presence of the main compound, but cannot differentiate multiple substances or indicate if there is a potentially deadly mix of compounds. The TLConscious kit provides a more comprehensive and thorough analysis of any substance in question.
The kit can also test plants when looking for specific compounds, which can be of great use to botanical researchers.
By funding TLConscious' campaign, you will potentially help save lives, or at the very least, prevent harmful intoxication by dangerous and/or unknown substances.
Prototypes of the TLConscious analytical kit have already been shipped around the world and used with success. For more info on the kits, please visit www.tlconscious.me or contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org .
NOTE: WE ARE LOCATED IN SPAIN BUT WILL SHIP WORLDWIDE!
What We Need & What You Get
It will take 20.000 euros to fund the acquisition of materials for the first 250 analysis kits, sustain the testing necessary to keep the kits as up-to-date and easy-to-use as possible, cover the costs of setting up an official non-profit organization, and pay indiegogo`s taxes. If we don't reach our goal, you will be fully refunded.
If we don´t reach our goal, unfortunately we will not be able to produce the kits and we will be forced to abandon this project.
We hope that our project will spread around the world and offer effective harm reduction procedures within everyone´s reach. Many harm reduction strategies have proved themselves to be very effective and a far better manner of dealing with substance use than the ignorance and shunning inherent to a prohibitionist model.
We believe in cognitive liberty. We believe that people have the right to autonomy over their own bodies and minds. It is not a privilege to avoid ingesting harmful substances, but a fundamental right. In order to secure these rights, people need real, unbiased information. We do not condone any illegal actions, we simply want to provide the ability for people to determine if they have adulterated or harmful substances and help them make informed decisions with regards to their health and well being.
