Erowid has been the most effective harm-reduction mechanism I've seen. While our government spends massive funds growing our prison population, Erowid offers information to help people make informed decisions. Information and education are truly empowering. Thank you, Erowid!

Erowid has the most accurate, up-to-date, and unbiased information you can find online about nearly any psychoactive substance. Erowid does a great job of presenting the full picture on any drug, giving the positives and negatives and letting people know what they should expect if they take it.

In a society dominated by total-abstinence policies on drugs where presenting any information on drugs other than exaggerated harms is a taboo, Erowid is a refreshingly honest and reliable source that makes the real harms and risks of substances very clear, while also articulating the benefits and experiences such substances can also provide, where applicable.

Erowid epitomizes harm-reduction through information and treats it's visitors as adults, capable of making rational, informed choices when presented with accurate information. The underground world of drug use would be a much darker, riskier, and scarier place if it weren't for the great work of Erowid.

Have been using Erowid for 5 years now. I consider them the gold standard for accurate, straightforward ethnobotanical information.
Knowledge truly is power

Erowid has helped both myself and many of my friends by supplying accurate, factual, information allowing you to gain a wealth of knowledge by reading through the hundreds of books and articles they have archived. I strongly believe it has saved lives with the information it supplies as much of it is difficult to find elsewhere and seriously important to those whom it concern.
