About Dark Matters

Dark Matters Eclipse

Dark Matters Magazine, covers the underbelly of what makes our world go round. From the crust of the earth to the cosmos of the universe, from Big Foot to Big Pharma, psychedelics to the supernatural, Dark Matters diving deep into the black hole of all that is suberversieve—sex, drugs, and aliens.

The magazine is the brain child of attorney and writer Allison Margolin.

Allison has run a law practice for the past 18 years since graduating from Harvard Law School. She started her career in journalism at the age of 14, when she began writing for her high school newspaper. Since then, she edited her college daily paper’s editorial section (for the Columbia Daily Spectator), authored a column for the Harvard Law Record, and has maintained a blog and contributed frequently to national publications. Allison has written about drugs since age 12 when she both authored a term paper on the politics of the drug trade in Colombia, and a speech criticizing DARE propaganda. In the mid and late ’90s, Allison wrote her thesis at Columbia on the politics of cannabis, drug legalization, and civil liberties; and authored her thesis for Harvard Law School “On the Right to Get High” in 2002. Since then she has contributed to local and national publications and recently signed a book deal with North Atlantic books to publish a memoir/history of the drug war. Just Dope is set for release the summer of 2022.

Dark Matters will cover the politics of the land, sea, atmosphere, space, and everything in between, and underneath, including lizard people and psychedelic finance, as well as feature cartoonists and photographers. The publication aims to combine the interests of those who actively seek to make the planet a better place for themselves and others.
