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

Most drug information these days are with one goal, to make the violation of freedoms known as the War on Drugs seem good. They ignore the good and exaggerate the bad. Erowid gives the honest truth, doesn't ignore the good or ignore the bad and doesn't overstate either. It is a great resource for people who want the real truth about drugs, especially if they plan on using it and want to hear more than "it's bad".

The existence of this site alone saves lives. As someone who devotes the majority of they're life to the study of psychedelics and what different effects psychoactive drugs have on the human body this website has been my best professor. Not only does it state only facts it gives you a way to look at everything from a different perspective. - Dylan

This service is priceless. Police, parents, teachers, EMT's and numerous others use this website as their go to page for information on any drugs. The site will tell you what the safe dose is, what the active dose is, how addictive the drug is, how legal/available the drug is, and countless other information. One of the most valuable features is the experience vaults, which give you detailed accounts of people who have taken the drug and documented the effects. This website is amazing.

Great information on everything required for safe and responsible drug use. It's also useful for those interested in the chemistry of drugs and how the brain is affected.

I have used Erowid again and again in researching drug use. The different sections and clear formatting have been extremely helpful, as has the different perspectives on drug use. The client has access to both the chemical aspects of the drug and the user experiences, and everything in between.

Erowid is a fantastic website. They have the most thorough and up to date info on substances that somehow or another affect humans, what they do, and how dangerous they are. There are so many vaults, from benadryl to methamphetamine. They have country to country laws on each substance, dosages,experiences from the general public, and chemistry of molecules. I have used this website for years in learning about substances that alter state of mind somehow. It wouldn't be a stretch to say this website has saved lives through its resources, possibly mine and even my friends lives.

Erowid provides invaluable information on psychoactive substances, without hype or judgement. In a time where factual information is difficult to come by on drugs, Erowid fills the need. If our children were taught about drugs using an approach as honest and non-judgmental as Erowid's i'm sure the age of first use of drugs and alcohol would increase.
They are my first resource that I look at when I want some information regarding psychoactive substances.
