Erowid Center
June 22, 2012

Erowid is an invaluable source for anyone interested in the effects, (health) risks, dosages of any psychoactive substance imaginable, no matter how recently discovered or how obscure. Thanks to the power of the large community behind them, the information stays up to date and is used not just by recreational users, but by professionals working in health care that need to find that little bit of extra information. Whether one be looking for psychopharmacological data, harm reduction oriented techniques or experience reports, everything can be found on Erowid. I have no idea where anyone would be without them. Invaluable hardly does them justice. Best source on psychoactive substances on the web.

Multidisciplinary Association For Psychedelic Studies
June 22, 2010

MAPS can be considered the main 'culprit' responsible for the resurge in interest in psychedelics research. This research was stopped due to a global ban on most psychoactive substances in the 60's, while experimental research had shown great potential in a wide variety of disciplines (medicine, psychology, addiction research, anthropology, philosophy and many more). For this alone, I cannot thank MAPS enough. Psychedelic substances are slowly getting back their place in the academic field, where they belong.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

the increase in professional interest in psychedelics, on an academic level. Scientific results, evidence-based objective data are the best way of showing that these substances are not a danger to society, but a possible solution to some of its problems.

More feedback

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

start funding experimental research in different countries around the world and help setting up researches for scientists that can't get funding elsewhere.
