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.

Erowid is the de facto source of information for those who seek more information about drugs. It is a fantastic harm reduction resource, a place to delve into archives to learn all there is to learn about any drug you can think of. I have no doubt it has saved countless lives and helped many other people have safer, more beneficial drug experiences. Donate if you can, because Erowid NEEDS to stay around.

I've been visiting this site since the early days of the internet. They have had the most accurate, helpful information I've seen online. I also love reading the experimentation stories, sometimes they are very funny... and always informative.

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 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.

It's so good to have a free-speaking drug encyclopida, to look up dosage, or legal status, or potentially harmful interactions, I would not want to take drugs in a world without Erowid!

This is such a unique and valuable archive. The interface on each substance's vault is so straightforward and refreshing as an alternative to sifting through random opinions on obscure forums. I've lost track of how many people I've recommended this site to. I can attribute almost all of my harm reduction practices and advice to Erowid.
