The Simpa Life was started in the summer of 2020 as the culmination of the activism work of UK-based drug and social issues activist Simpa Carter. This new project seeks to create a space free from the restrictions and limitations of social media algorithms and shadowbanning. TSL will focus on some of the most pressing issues of our times through the careful creation and curation of alternative and thought-provoking content and conversations.
“The consequences of prohibition do far more harm to the individual and society than any substance ever could. It’s time to end the failed war on us”
Born and raised in the northeast of England Simpa’s early life was anything but typical. Surviving a youth punctuated by wanton abuse, various drug dependency issues, and years of escalating self-destructive tendencies gave Simpa the knowledge, lived experience, and motivation to dedicate the rest of his life to ending the antiquated, racist, and fascistic war on drugs.
