This website is crucial in providing important information in safe drug use since the general practitioners doesn't usually do that :)

One of the few sources on the internet I trust for advice regarding hallucinogens and other substances. Not only are there multiple first-hand accounts from users, but there are links to scholarly articles as well as an option to add your own story to the narratives.

Valuable information that is needed. Modern day promotes much ignorance about psychoactives, making erowid a valuable resource considering psychoactives do have an impact on our lives.

Erowid is one of the most non-biased, informational resources that I have ever encountered.

Erowid is the go to website for any psychedelic information. The experience vaults are vastly varied and interesting. Great steps toward harm reduction.

This website has been apart of my life for many years. I have used the information on the site for many different avenues of my life. The experience and wealth of knowledge is invaluable. As a maturing adult without many reliable sources this site helped me find myself and place in the world. They have introduced me to the many pioneers and forerunners. This site is simply amazing. It was also quite nice to hear them speak at Sasha's service.

I have been reading information from erowid for over 7 years, they have never led me astray. The site has changed my life forever, helping me to make informed decisions and I have learned priceless life lessons from the 1000s of reports I've read over the years. I haven't used a single resource on the Web for ANY topic more than I've used erowid.
I sometimes wonder how many lives have been saved by this sites accurate information, and ease of access.
I believe it's truly a magnificent achievement of mankind.

I've used Erowid for several years. It has kept me informed and safe. Education is key...and my fellow Americans are so uneducated when it comes to the truth behind the wide variety of substances in this world. Keep up the good work. Thank you!
