Erowid provides me and many other people with real information about psychoactive drugs, substances, plants, etc. (which humans have been experimenting with for thousands of years--just saying). Without websites like erowid, people could die or cause unnecessary damage to themselves and others because of lack of knowlege about what you're doing or how to properly do it, and not overdo it, etc. Usually, any other drug education is false, propaganda, or just lies to scare people from doing it, such as all the marijuana myths. That is why we need websites like erowid, so that people can practice safe and responsible drug use.

This is a valuable repository of knowledge, both technical, anecdotal, while meandering in-between. This site should be preserved and maintained...

When you have an empty void in your heart that can only be filled with drugs but are also an extreme hypochondriac, you'll come to realize that a site like Erowid is your best friend. I cannot express how many times this site has saved my life by informing me of the side-effects and/or complications of any drug I decide to ingest. Thank you Erowid.

This is an amazing resources for everyone who uses drugs or considers using drugs. It has without a doubt saved many lives throughout the years and continues to do so by providing accurate information in a non-judgemental way about drugs. The great thing is, you don't have to do illegal drugs to benefit from this website.

I couldn't say more about erowid and they help in my life.. everybody in my country despise drugs in any form for about mis-information they devour from media and government through education.. well perhaps i'm the one.. since i am born in conservative family but my stubborn head didn't stop me experimenting with any kind of drugs known that day..
I used to inhaled glue, petrol and stuff since teenager.. and as time went on i thought i just went little deeper with that stuff, use alcohol for substitute butit didnt took me anywhere..
When i 25 ithankyou to google, i finally knew erowid and aghast that i poisoned myself with the dangeroust drugs ever known to human family that ALCOHOL AND NICOTIN, I happen to be alcoholic and hard smoker..
Erowid taught me a lot of things about drugs and its usefullness to expand human consciousness and altering my perception.. since that day i knew my government do NOT allow me to experience the most must things that we have to as a human to experience..
Thankyou Erowid for giving us the forbidden fruit.. thankyou
