I am naturally inclined to want to explore my mind through the use of drugs that alter conscious states. I would have no doubt attempted to do so whether there were resources available to educate myself on these substances or not. What I can say is that Erowid, which far exceeds any other resource in its comprehensive education of the listed substances , has helped to make every single one of my experiences on these substances a positive one. This has been primarily done through the writing of others about their first times and their difficult experiences and what to expect and how to deal with them. In addition it also lets me know which drugs are worth my time, by giving me immediate access to the scientific literature on said drugs.

Erowid does what the government should be doing. Educating and preventing harm.

I know this site since 10 years a go and it has helped me go through a lot of new stuff that I didn't have any idea of. It is a massive compilation of very useful information, very good advisor on what to do and what not to do with each substance, very objective also. For me it is a guide that introduce you theoretically to new worlds and by doing that is like going with a map to a new city. All I can say is that there's only good and no bad on the intention of this page, any information you can get is more worth it than any prohibition you can get on this subject.

Erowid me fue de gran ayuda al inicio de mi juventud cuando tenía inquietudes por la marihuana, hongos alucinógenos y LSD, nunca me imagine que en alguna página de internet hubiera tanta información, no solo buena, sino que también, lo malo, y lo neutral, poco a poco me fui adentro mas en este tema y al leer experiencias, tips, e información, hicieron mis experiencias sanas, seguras, las cuales, definitivamente hicieron de mi una mejor persona, puede sonar raro, pero asi fue, solo me queda gracias Erowid! gracias por tanta información.
