The Erowid database, particularly the experiences vault, is invaluable information. I am not a drug user. Indeed, I work in the correctional system as a substance and mental health counselor. But the "war on drugs" Is comprised of ostriches with their head in the sand. Erowid helps people make informed choices - the pleasant effects, yes, but also the trainwreck deadly combinations. It allow me to better understand my clients. It allow me to have candid conversations about synthetics to avoid and potentially lethal combinations. Thank you, Erowid.

The most accurate information complied on psychedelics and all things alike;
Erowid is a site I've always used in the past to further my knowledge on drugs and how they work for mind expansion, now that I've expanded mine there still seems to be more to know, and Erowid still seems to be the site to inform me.
It has helped me in all of my personal botany studies,
and to aid some of my own family members from major drug addiction, and their friends,
by discovering plants in which could be used for drug withdrawl, or just to stop the drug in it's tracks completely. This site has helped me immensely in many ways,
I haven't found a groovier source in all of my studies.

Excellent resource for open, honest discourse on recreational drug use. An absolute essential service for anyone who wants to learn about a substance without wading through overwhelming bias and propaganda that most other sites contain.

This website is incredible. The information is incredibly accurate and always updated. The experience section has detailed reports from real users. Spreading information for safety purposes is important and sadly looked down upon by most.

Being a pharmacist doubling as a chemical engineering major currently (I'm crazy, I know), I can't say how many times Erowid has been there. The ability to combine and look at my knowledge in reference to both of my fields, while extremely similar, is something I could have never done as easily as with Erowid. I can't thank the center enough for the countless nights and hours spent researching and documenting with their constant addiction to proper documentation and well written nodes on specific chemicals and drugs.

The educational, non-profit website Erowid is an amazing tool. Whether people like it or not, recreational substance use is more and more becoming a part of mainstream culture, but it is not what it once was. While there will always be a criminal element to drug use, due to the addictive nature of some substances when used irresponsibly, the demographic of "drug users" is rapidly becoming more responsible, educated and productive, and Erowid is at the forefront of this movement. By supplying information about the safe practice of recreational drug use, Erowid helps keep the community informed about how to responsibly use a substance that may have been abused or misused. Erowid most importantly admonishes responsibility and safety in drug use. This reverberates within the community and is helping to create a "drug culture" where its members function better in society and remain safe in there experimentation.

Best non-profit organization, hands down. They've saved lives and given people comfort with drug use. Ultimately, you cannot stop drug use, but you can promote harm reduction through knowledge.

Thank you Erowid staff.
