Reviews for Erowid Center

Rating: 5 stars  

Erowid supports a vast wealth of accurate and unbiased information on nearly any substance, exercise or practice one might undergo in order to achieve some change in perception. Not just about the raw facts and data, but also with the user-submitted reports from thousands of people who have had very real experiences ranging from absolute nightmares to life-affirming realizations and pure bliss. The information provided has no doubt saved lives and helps to educate those that are curious, regardless of whether they use or even approve of the behavior. The only possible con is that the website's layout/style could use an update.

The #1 resource on all things drug related, truly a shining beacon of psychoactive research in the mire that is drug "information" disseminated by the media.

The amount of hard work done by the people at Erowid cannot be thanked enough by words. The best place to find any type of information regarding any type of drug. Not only information about pharmacology, dosages, effects, benefits and risks, but also users' experiences, law, culture, art. And everything is so beautifully objective and unbiased. They deserve way more recognition and funding.

I have been using Erowid's resources since the early 2000s and it's information has only expanded and become more refined over the years thanks to dutiful editing and curation by the wonderful (and small) staff. Nowhere else on the web is this type and quality of information available in one place. The information contained within and especially user-submitted narratives of first-hand experience will be vastly interesting to future generations seeking to understand this culture.

Erowid provides a medium for drug users to both share personal experiences and learn from others experiences. Some people are going to do drugs and its only right for there to be a safe, honest way for users to get information. Erowid is that and more.

Erowid has many wonderful aspects and is run by very humble yet highly skilled and integral staff and volunteers. Erowid is used by the ER docs in my neighborhood. Erowid.org has likely saved my life, as without the easily-accessed vital information in the vast online library, I could easily have ingested dangerous substances in dangerous amounts or dangerous combinations. Erowid spends its precious resources wisely- they have a tiny overhead and staff payroll and their impact is global, life-saving, and unique. There is nothing else like Erowid, and all kinds of people rely on it all over the world.

As we move away from prohibition and towards health care and harm reduction as the basis of our drug laws Erowid Center provides doctors, legislators and all interested parties with information that will help shape a more just and safe society. For this reason I have supported Erowid Center for over 10 years and encourage all who read this review to step up and support this great nonprofit in its mission.
