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 is an amazing resource! The people behind this extraordinary site have done more constructive work than any government organization. I have used Erowid for years to inform myself on both the positives and negatives of many different substances, both legal and illegal. I can't imagine the Internet without it!

At first as a medical practicioner, and eventually I began to read Erowid. For reasons ranging from curisity to morbid curiosity. God bless the country where experiences can be shared without the war on drugs slogans drowning out logical thought. While some of it is disturbing, it can hardly be less disturbing for juveniles conficted as felons for life for having a plant in their pocket or a synthetic version in the mailbox. The "War on Drugs" ends with mutual understanding. I do not believe in internet censorship, Don't incite abuse, share your experiences, for better or worse knowledge is POWER. Keep it up you junkies ;) ;)

Erowid is most likely one of the best organisation that holds non-biased material relating to psychoactive substances and other forms of an altered state of consciousness. If anyone is looking for information regarding psychoactive substances; Erowid is among the best references for such a subject.

Erowid has helped me throughout several years of research and studying about psychoactives and psychedelic culture.
If erowid.com didn't exist, we would lose a great amount of knowledge about this ambiguous yet interesting and rewarding world. Please, keep it up guys!

If every time we need factual, accurate, unfiltered information we had access to a source with the quality of Erowid the humankind would be in a far more advanced position in every field. Erowid stands as one of the best examples of transparency and reliability even though it deals with very complex data. I would recommend any professional, student, explorer or curious to pass by and check it. Very rarely you find high quality information that is also enjoyable.
Ditch the TV, come to Erowid.

This organization is not a simple encyclopedia about drugs. It is not a forum or website were drugs are sponsored as positive. It is a complete guide full of information, data, statistics, reviews, harm reduction advice to the medicinal, spiritual or recreational use of psychoactive substances. It lists with complete sources all the negative and positive impact of these substances. I'm sure if anybody who has ever used or will ever use psychoactives had visited and learned what he could on this website, there would be no deaths, probably even no addictions. Drug education is one of the most important issues of our generation. I fully support and respect erowid for all the benefits it has brought me, my friends and many other around the world.
