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.
I was born in 1990. It was just the beginning of personal computers in the home. And I was just lucky enough have one. I grew up learning things about commuters, video games that play with others. While my mind grew up so did the internet's and then one fateful day I discovered Erowid. From then oh it was a new obsession. Learning about drugs through the experiences of others. I read so many trip reports. It was all very fancy. The sources spoke for themselves. Over all the years Erowid has been a place to learn objectivity, not in a D.A.R.E. class where you are simply taught to just agree and say no.
Erowid is a great and simple way to get the right answers.
Erowid is an amazing resource! The people behind this extraordinary site have done more constructive work than any government organization. I have used Erowid for years to inform myself on both the positives and negatives of many different substances, both legal and illegal. I can't imagine the Internet without it!
At first as a medical practicioner, and eventually I began to read Erowid. For reasons ranging from curisity to morbid curiosity. God bless the country where experiences can be shared without the war on drugs slogans drowning out logical thought. While some of it is disturbing, it can hardly be less disturbing for juveniles conficted as felons for life for having a plant in their pocket or a synthetic version in the mailbox. The "War on Drugs" ends with mutual understanding. I do not believe in internet censorship, Don't incite abuse, share your experiences, for better or worse knowledge is POWER. Keep it up you junkies ;) ;)
Erowid saves lives, relationships and careers by providing accurate and useful information about psychoactive substances. It's like sex education for things that phuck with your mind.
Erowid is most likely one of the best organisation that holds non-biased material relating to psychoactive substances and other forms of an altered state of consciousness. If anyone is looking for information regarding psychoactive substances; Erowid is among the best references for such a subject.
Erowid has helped me throughout several years of research and studying about psychoactives and psychedelic culture.
If erowid.com didn't exist, we would lose a great amount of knowledge about this ambiguous yet interesting and rewarding world. Please, keep it up guys!
If every time we need factual, accurate, unfiltered information we had access to a source with the quality of Erowid the humankind would be in a far more advanced position in every field. Erowid stands as one of the best examples of transparency and reliability even though it deals with very complex data. I would recommend any professional, student, explorer or curious to pass by and check it. Very rarely you find high quality information that is also enjoyable.
Ditch the TV, come to Erowid.
I have used Erowid for over ten years now and still crucial as ever. Simple interface and great user/comunity sharing wich has lead to direct action. This site has saved me and many others having to learn from VERY dangerous trial and error methods.
Very well maintained site. I LOVE IT
