My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for Erowid Center, Grass Valley, CA, USA
Erowid and the fascinating information it has was the original inspiration for myself to pursue a biotechnology career field. It provides good starting points for research, generates interest, and educates on the true nature of drugs.
Education is the only way that drugs will become known as useful tools by a society that currently mistrusts anything to do with drugs and Erowid provides a drug user "insider" education, something of a running documentary. Much of the info is via anecdotal trip reports which are not always useful scientifically, but are very useful for recreational drug users' safety. Whether or not one agrees with recreational drug use, it should always be a rational thing to at least allow them the information needed to reduce potential harm.
We don't know the bad that hasn't happened due to Erowid's existence! It can't be measured if it didn't happen, but I would bet much on the fact that countless drug use mishaps have been avoided due to the existence of Erowid.
