Great information on Erowid. Much better education on drugs than any agency or government will give.

Erowid is an amazing website that has more information on drugs than most people want or need, it offers you the chance to truly receive education about the drugs you may have been prescribed or are taking for recreational benefit.

When most governments around the world see that teaching abstinence as the only acceptable form of drug education, you need a website like erowid to pop up on google when you are searching for information on a drug.

Any other site such as webmd, would simply say to you that drugs are bad, and you shouldn't do them. This doesn't stop kids from guzzling cough syrup and anti-histamines for a cheap high, all this does is keep them unaware of dangerous dosage levels and other information that can reduce the risk of harm.

Using Erowid before using a drug is like putting on a condom before having sex. Knowing is half the battle, and in practice it keeps everyone in society safer.

Thank you Erowid for always being there.

This site gives the experiences of many people with pretty much every substance out there. It saved me from making mistakes that could have potentially hurt me and/or been very unpleasant since I was 15. I am now 27 and still turn to the site for info and advice about a multitude of subjects. I love this site!

Erowid is an amazing resource! The people behind this extraordinary site have done more constructive work than any government organization. I have used Erowid for years to inform myself on both the positives and negatives of many different substances, both legal and illegal. I can't imagine the Internet without it!

This non profit has helped me make safe choices and decisions. Most of the harm of psychoactive substances is a result of misinformation, and Erowid is a reputable source for harm reduction and education relating to pyschoactive substances

Erowid to me is one of the most useful sources of information when I seek new, and most importantly safe, experiences. If I ever have questions about any sort of drugs I can't turn to elders or the government, whose idea of harm reduction is throwing people in cages for drug possession, but i can turn to erowid for safe and reliable first hand accounts, scientific articles, and harm reduction guides. It is truly an amazing resource
