Erowid is undoubtedly one of the longest running and most reliable sources of information about medications, pharmaceuticals and other mind altering substances. Untouched by corporate interests, it's served in its purpose honestly and faithfully since the dawn of the internet and deserves all the praise I can muster.

As history has shown, prohibition does not work as intended. With that in mind, Erowid brings a clear vision for harm reduction and education that is sorely lacking in many official channels. Humans have always, and will always explore their world, inside and out. Erowid proves to be a welcome guide to safely exploring these inner spaces when consenting adults choose to do so. Earth and Fire are truly advancing the cause of safe experimentation and personal responsibility and I am grateful for their work.

Erowid is one of the best places to get information regarding psychoactives. This information has helped me and many others. Most other resources do not offer the same in-depth information about psychoactives that Erowid does.

This is by far one of the single most important resources for harm reduction on the internet, without it many lives are at risk. I have used it personally hundreds, if not thousands of times researching the intended effects of particular substances friends, family , myself or even strangers have ingested.

Without this i would have potentially overdosed many times.I believe instead of the war on drugs harm reduction is where we should be focusing.And i believe erowid is a good start on harm reduction.

Erowid is the most comprehensive, accurate resource for drug/pharmaceutical information I can think of. It's my favorite non-profit and my favorite drug-related website. Insanely valuable for harm-reduction, and its vaults of user-submitted information about certain substances is wonderful.

All the time, every second..every hour people are doing drugs. This site is a LIFE SAVER.
They don't ask for money they just save so many lives by giving information, harm reduction (the only way you win against drugs) letting other people tell their stories and you really learn from them and you keep you and the people you love safe. All thanks to this website. It's my favorite if you haven't noticed.

I have not used Erowid for a long time, but I can tell you that this website is very welcoming and pleasing to read. User reports of drug use are well written and informative. They may invite others to safely try substances or to stay away from dangerous substances.
The community is very loving, and I would love to see this website stay up for a long time.
