Erowid is undoubtedly one of the longest running and most reliable sources of information about medications, pharmaceuticals and other mind altering substances. Untouched by corporate interests, it's served in its purpose honestly and faithfully since the dawn of the internet and deserves all the praise I can muster.

Erowid provides accurate and unbiased information regarding substances that alter perception. It helps me to decide for myself whether they are safe through analysis of research, law, news, and many other sources. If all recreational substance users read Erowid, there would be a marked drop in harm from all drugs.

This non profit has helped me make safe choices and decisions. Most of the harm of psychoactive substances is a result of misinformation, and Erowid is a reputable source for harm reduction and education relating to pyschoactive substances

Erowid to me is one of the most useful sources of information when I seek new, and most importantly safe, experiences. If I ever have questions about any sort of drugs I can't turn to elders or the government, whose idea of harm reduction is throwing people in cages for drug possession, but i can turn to erowid for safe and reliable first hand accounts, scientific articles, and harm reduction guides. It is truly an amazing resource

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