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

¬°Great site! It helps to know how to introduce to certain substances in a very healthy way. You can learn and inform about this kinds of things, and that way you'll be able to really know what you are doing, and what's the better way of doing it. Sometimes the lack of information and experiences can be dangerous, so its really important to enter to erowid and check how other people lived their experiences before trying a new psicoactive trip.

Great website. Simple enough interface to find what you're looking for. Erowid has so many facts on all kinds of substances. Very useful for understanding drugs and their ups n downs.

Erowid is really an amazing site, it offers a ridiculous amount of knowledge on all types of substances, while never glorifying them or their use. It gives you the cold hard facts about the pros and cons, and even lets users submit their own experiences, which is a really excellent feature that helps readers get a better understanding of the good, the bad, and the ugly.

Erowid has offered me the one of the most trustworthy and vast bank of information via articles, collected data and user experiences that is so hard to find any other place. My favorite entheogen information source over many many years.

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.

The site it excellent. About information, about order about people that construct it. In plane of pharmaceuticals and psyconautics its crucial (legal aside).
