Honestly, I can't think of any other organization in my life that has had a bigger positive impact on me, including schools and national governments. Thank you, Erowid!

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Spread the word even further about what a great thing they provide.

Erwoids is truly more than just a handful of help, it's many lifetimes of experiences that should not be taken for granted, but rather be well respected and seen for what it really is.

EROWID is the ultimate library explaining and understanding the pro/con's of Drugs. Humanity's fear of knowing the real effects of Drugs has to come to an end. Educate ourselves and we can surely avoid death rates. Drugs are all around us anyway. Help yourself and others by knowing the positive and negative effects of Drugs. Thanks to EROWID for an organized and simple library of knowledge on every Drug! By the way, Alcohol is a Drug and probably the worst legal Drug ever. For anyone that thinks Drugs only come in capsules and pills.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Create more merchandize. Long sleeves, t-shirts, etc. Thanks for reading.

I have been using this website for quite a long time to research different psychoactive chemicals. It is a good collaboration of personal information, well documented scientific research, and art relating to the topic. I find it very helpful in some cases in which I need information on different psychoactives. There are a few flaws as far as organization goes, and should always look on expanding this knowledge database. This website is wonderful and helpful overall!

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Add even more information, try to organize the experience vaults more, promote the art a tad more, and fill out some of the little missing blocks on certain psychoactives.

The article "The L.E.S.S. Method: A Measured Approach to Oral Cannabis" mentions how "dangerous" and possible it is to "overdose" when eating cannabis.
It should mention that smoking a joint while effected by Oral Cannabis, will stop the effects of the Oral Cannabis, and the only effect from then on will be from the smoked joint.
SIMPLE: if you want to stop the experience from Oral Cannabis, smoke some.

Also: there is no mention of the decarboxylation required to activate the THCA to THC.

We're sorry that you didn't find the article helpful. Many people eat cannabis and experience it as overly strong. We don't actually say anywhere in the article that it's dangerous. Also, it's certainly not true that smoking additional cannabis will stop the effects from previously eaten oral cannabis. However this is also not the appropriate forum to address this issue. We'd be happy to discuss edits or corrections to an article via email.

I wanna know what the f**k I'm getting myself in to, and still be able to get f**ked up.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Get some more information about the prescription opiates.

Erowid is one of the most educational websites I use. I would definitely recommend Erowid to some one who wants to learn more about psychoactive substances and their history.
