SInce I have known of the organization, I have watched Erowid act as a positive influence in lives of many experimental teenagers . For young people who are set on experimentation, having this information available to them allows them to make far better decisions than they would otherwise.
Today, as an adult with an interested in drug policy and harm reduction, the organization continues to provide me with valuable information relevant to the work that I do.
Erowid is an invaluable self-help, harm reduction and informational resource, and it deserves recognition for the important contribution it makes.
