Every time I had doubts Erowid was there to support me and many others.
This website is unique and must be preserved with care.

I have been reading erowid for many years. I have given them around $400 over the years. It has been inestimably less than value received.

Wonderful resource, large swathes of knowledge about all types of things. There is nothing on the web like erowid, I've been going there for years and recommend it to everyone I know.

Erowid.org and Bluelight.org go hand in hand. I worked for BL for years, and our staff always knows that we can direct someone towards Erowid knowing that they will not be misled. People are going to get high, and we much prefer that they are educated before they make any decisions.

This website has undoubtedly helped thousands of its visitors use psychoactive chemicals safely. Far more important, it has, in my educated opinion, saved many lives.

The information found on Erowid is invaluable, as it is at times the ONLY credible source for ethnobotanical and narcotic information. The users and researchers of these chemicals lean heavily on Erowid for trustworthy and unbiased scientific resources.

Erowid performs a public service to a subpopulation desperately in need of authoritative information on the safety and efficacy of psychoactive drugs as medicine and recreation.

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

Funding would make a world of difference to Erowid. I would also publish some more scientific studies and ethnobotanical journal articles.

In my personal and professional life, I've come to know many actual people that would have probably died if a tool like Erowid weren't at their disposal during their time of "dabbling".
There will always be a drug culture - no matter what - so why not (at least) give that culture the tools they need to be as informed as possible?

This is not a "drug pR0n" website like "High Times" (no offense to High Times); this is an archive of information that neither encourages, nor discourages drug-use.

..At it's core, all Erowid truly wants is for everyone to have the most balanced information possible; gathered into one, freely accessible location.
I promise you - they have the best of intentions.

Erowid saves lives by providing information not otherwise readily available... It helped me rescue one son with Ibogaine and prevent another son from some reckless experimentation that his schoolmates almost talked him into doing.

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

publicize it more

We need more resources like Erowid--it isn't perfect, but it offers plenty of propaganda free information on controversial substances. Instead of saying all these things are bad (like we were taught in school, DARE, etc) the focus is on harm reduction and education.

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

I just want it to be more well known so that more people can benefit from the information it provides.
