Any time I need to know anything about and kind of substance I knew erowid had the information. Any info I felt was important I loved to share with friends to keep us safe. Without this website I could have done some pretty dumb stuff but the knowledge I gained kept my head on straight. Many lives have been saved by erowid I'm glad something like this exists.

1 of my children is a sophomore in college and his sister is a junior in a college 4 states away from either of us. Neither ever had a prescription until high school and for my son it was topical a few times for ringworm he caught when he wrestled over as a freshman and again junior and senior year. His senior year a whole team had to forfeit an entire season when the whole team got scabies. I have never heard of anyone younger than 50 having scabies let alone 30 healthy athletes, but I knew then there was a good reason I boycotted the chicken pox vaccination for my both children because it was stupid to put that sort of chemical that has long term effects into anyone and look...around 10 years later look what we have now. As for my daughter, her senior year her doctor wrote her first prescription for a natural topical cream for acne she didn't want seen at senior prom. I raised them to never assume a doctor will know how you respond to a prescription and if you can seek to educate yourself you would know why it is given to you and worth the risk...And that would go for any sort of drug from any person. And they usually have no idea what is even in the drug. My children drink if they want a beer or milk for breakfast and cook brownies for the chocolate or for the marijuana. Our rule is if you have to hide it or can't talk about it you know it is bad for you. And it is a really bad idea to find info from idiots trying to take your money (like most doctors and most drug dealers). I have been using your material to show them how drugs don 't kill people but if your stupid taking them it is obviously you causing your own death when you didn't need to trust "opinion" but facts like I would show them you had on your site. Thank you for helping my kids live to see another day. God bless you for helping me live to watch them become more amazing than I could ever imagine. There is no greater gift you could have given our family. Sincerely, Teresa Jorns
