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

Erowid is an amazing website that has more information on drugs than most people want or need, it offers you the chance to truly receive education about the drugs you may have been prescribed or are taking for recreational benefit.

When most governments around the world see that teaching abstinence as the only acceptable form of drug education, you need a website like erowid to pop up on google when you are searching for information on a drug.

Any other site such as webmd, would simply say to you that drugs are bad, and you shouldn't do them. This doesn't stop kids from guzzling cough syrup and anti-histamines for a cheap high, all this does is keep them unaware of dangerous dosage levels and other information that can reduce the risk of harm.

Using Erowid before using a drug is like putting on a condom before having sex. Knowing is half the battle, and in practice it keeps everyone in society safer.

Thank you Erowid for always being there.

This site gives the experiences of many people with pretty much every substance out there. It saved me from making mistakes that could have potentially hurt me and/or been very unpleasant since I was 15. I am now 27 and still turn to the site for info and advice about a multitude of subjects. I love this site!

This site is literally saving lives. By providing extensive human experience information on many officially untested substances, it serves as an invaluable database for observers and users to base their own intentions on. This site should be on par with Wikipedia as far as popularity goes because countless lives would be saved if that were the case.

Erowid provides quality, unbiased information on any chemical you could imagine. It has saved my life at least once by allowing me to make informed decisions about what I put in my body. It is a resource I almost constantly use, and is well deserving of a five star review.
