Review for Erowid Center, Grass Valley, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Erowid is the shining beacon of light in a world otherwise clouded by disillusionment, bias, and often terribly dangerous misinformation. It is without a doubt the single best encyclopedic source for accurate data on essentially every psychoactive there is. It cites up to date legal changes, references respectable scientific research, and keeps relevant historical and societal influence in mind as well. Its a community of people ranging from users who share their experience to researchers who confirm the data shown. It is astonishing in how unbiased it is.

Considering that somebody somewhere is and always will be using any drug in its database regardless of consequence, Erowid will still clearly and honestly state the real risks and dangers of using said substance however severe or non-existent these may be. And if the information isn't available yet for whatever reason, it clearly warms you as such. If used more extensively by the general populace it would without doubt decrease the harmful effects drugs as a whole have on society. It has changed my whole perspective on psychoactives, keeping certain drugs deservingly vilified but also opening my eyes to the fact that some drugs that we have been told from a very young age are very dangerous are in fact safer than ibuprofen.
