If not for the brutally honest Erowid Experience Vaults, I would have ended up in the hospital from allergic reaction, but because I found others had the same problem I was able to stop the problem myself. Any time I get a prescription, or before I decide to try a new herb for cooking or tea I always go to Erowid first. More than just the cookie cutter descriptions given by the drug companies, I love being able to see other people's experiences. I share the site with everyone!

As a college student, I see people around me using medications and prescriptions that they've never heard of before just for the feeling it gives them in situations of high stress.
It's important to read about experiences of others, and have a solid place to find such information.
Erowid provides not only information, but experiences, dosage information, drug interactions, etc.
This makes it possible for ANYONE--whether they do drugs or not--to have information on things they don't know much about.
Thank lord for Erowid!

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

make it easier to jump from page to page and see related substances, it would also be nice to have more recent experience reports, because now that it is 2014, posts from 2009 seem outdated...

Erowid helps the global community by providing people with the most important thing world: knowledge. This knowledge, I'm sure, has prevented many accidents and stops misinformation in its track. It is the best source for information regarding psychoactive drugs, and aids safe use.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Improve the website layout and update some information.

The challenge before us is finding a path towards freedom of consciousness. EROWID is a pioneer in this field and will be of greatest value to the new social movement of overcoming our states' oppressive biopolitic agenda.

This website is very, very interesting. It is so helpful to get to know all the drugs and chemicals out there. It takes one thing and breaks it down into a million little bits of information so you can know everything about it. One of the helpful is how there are categories of the drug. Like for example, the effects of LSD or the science behind adrenachrome. Very good, valid source of information if you need it.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Nothing, keep it the way it is.

I found about this website in 2009. Ever since I have used it frequently. It's nice to see good accurate information on substances. Erowid has probably saved my life in more than one instance by providing info on dosages and what can be potentially dangerous. If I had money I would donate as much as I can to this site. I believe strongly in their cause and everything on there can be understood easily.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Post more art!

Any drug or substance can be found on this website. The well-known stuff have in-depth information which includes descriptions, effects, images and experiences with the substances. This website is a great resource for research or even finding out if a certain drug or plant is worth doing. This project is fantastic and should gain more recognition. The more renowned this site becomes the more it can contribute.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

More information on the drugs! The more information, experiences and images will just make the site even better
