I have seen Erowid grow from simply a website that has been an institution, to a non-profit and institute poised to continue their valuable work for many years to come. Addressing a multidisciplinary, controversial topic far more completely than any other resource in any medium, Erowid Center collects, evaluates and presents information with intelligence, rigor, innovation, common sense and humor. That everyone on every side of the endless debates about psychoactive plants and chemicals looks to, uses, returns to, trusts and praises Erowid Center says more than any individual evaluation. Truly an important resource, maintained with integrity and the thinnest possible overhead, they leverage the effort of a dedicated crew into a global presence, while amassing data that scholars, artists, policy makers and the public will use and ponder indefinitely. A shining example of the spirit and energy of the non-profit ethos, Erowid Center is a model that sets a very high bar for excellence in education and service.

Clone the founders, so that they might devote more time to development, outreach and succession planning.
