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.

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

Nada, es mas que ideal.

erowid , es una pagina que conozco hace 3 años cuando empece a consumir cannabis , pero mi intriga por la historia y formas de consumo me bastaron para visitar erowid , que me dio la suficiente información sobre la sustancia que consumo y las notables diferencias entre la marihuana prensada y adulterada a la marihuana de calidad

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

The priceless information contained herein is just as useful to the educated explorer and the inexperienced beginner. Perfect resource for recreation and medicinal applications. More to the point, this site stopped me from doing some very stupid things and helped me decide how and when do some very good things safely. What more needs to be said?

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

Allow it to grow.

You put everything out on the table.. Your experience or experiences , height weight, etc. the amount of the substance being used ,the mix with other substances.. Plus I usually here about the potential dangers, even though most adults maybe aware of these.. No one here tells grown ass adults what to do, like the fn gov does.. Everyone is so different from one another.. And that is why we come here, so we have an idea about these substances.. All the bleepin government does is LIE! Come here for the truth!

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

Get bigger and go to the screwball congress that gets nothing done and legalize everything! Tax it and pay the debt that our politicians caused..

Erowid has provided the public with a non-bias, source of information on substances and chemicals of an astounding variety. There is accurate information regarding the legal status/repercussions, health dangers, chemical structure, duration, intended purpose ect. on everything from LSD to aspirin. Many regard distribution of such knowledge as taboo (since many of the substances are scheduled and/or controlled). However, in compiling this information in one place it has demystified the notoriety of these substances and has helped to create a truly drug aware audience.

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

I would not change anything about this organization.

I started simply reading erowid, and over the past few years i have gone from a user to a volenteeer to a donating member. i cannot explain the significance of this website to me. without it i would have never been able to get over my anhedonic depression or fully realize myself. I have also been able to help many people over come, or reduce their addictions by using information from erowid

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

increase the speed that new information of new reasearch chemicals is posted

No matter what the government tries to do, there will always be drugs and drug users. I believe that if more people had access to reports and valid information on certain substances, they will be more knowledgeable on what they are getting themselves into, and are more likely to avoid hurting themselves or others. The only other sources of drug information people have are randomly-owned, opinion-filled websites or just from word of mouth from people on the streets.

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

I would make the website more widely know and available to a larger portion of the public.
