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

I first stumbled upon Erowid probably over a decade ago, and immediately became a fan of the organization and the website they operate. The plethora of information on psychoactives and their combinations, many of which are unknown in the "main-stream" drug culture, are explored in depth. The plethora of information provided is only further reinforced by the peer volunteer edited and submitted experience reports. The site does wonders in offering a non-biased, scientific as well as personal, catalog that I'd say more than adequately provides readers with accessible knowledge which can only result in a better understanding of the psychoactives which in turn helps spur harm reduction.

With a lot of reliable information and people sharing their experiences and knowledge Erowid became the main source/database when you need to research or get started with new studies. Thanks

This charity is a pool of non-judgemental people who's righteous agenda is not only showing the real risks of drug, but also tells stories and shows millions that drugs are not as bad as we think. research work and people get together and talk about ways to inform and reform the public and there opinion on drugs.

Erowid is one of the best things on the internet ever. Striving to put together a database of studies, personal experiences, side effects, etc of every recreational drug known to man(even caffeine!), Erowid is a lifesaver in a sea of harmful misinformation leftover from the failed drug war. Erowid has held my hand through every psychedelic experience I've ever had and has definitely had a positive impact on my life experience. Love you, Erowid! You are doing Eris' work!

Unbiased website. Its database on experiences with psychoactives covers very bad experiences as well as heavenly experiences of people with psychoactives. And it covers a lot of psychoactives, a range of plants, fungi, artifiicaly substances and animals. Just reading the experiences is a delight in itself. I have come across some beautiful prose. Reading from other people's experiences can also gain you new insights. Most of all the website encourages responsible use of psychoactives. It can be a medicine, but if used incorrectly it can be damaging. More awareness of the potentials of psycoactive should be spread. And not all should be labeled as 'drugs' or be demonized. And yes, it actually covers more than psychedelic substances, also sedatives and uppers and what more. Go check for yourself! :)

A wide array of knowledge available to the public for educational growth. An excellent database, as well as a wonderful library for the curious. It is necessary to share this type of knowledge, rather than dismiss it.

This has been a great organization in helping me make educated decisions towards my use of mind-altering drugs for the purpose of menta and spiritual growth.

A treasure trove of material presented in an unbiased, professional format. If I am looking for anything to do with psychedelics, my first stop would be Erowid Center

This site has taught me and many of my peers how to safely administer a variety of chemicals, plants, and drugs. For each page there is usually many third-party scientific studies that can confirm the information posted on the site. This site does NOT encourage drug use. Rather, it promotes harm reduction. I have no doubt in my mind that the Erowid Center has saved countless lives through the sharing of non-biased information regarding a myriad of substances.
