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.

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 feel confident this sites has prevented many traumatic experiences, trips to the hospital and even deaths. The curated sources range from scientific experts to end-user experience reports. The warnings on common problems such as critical/small dosing, adulterants, and the actual report of the analyses contents of some drugs carry more weight from this source than from a governmental or traditional news source. Whenever I see a sensational headline involving some drug, Erowid is my first resource to get a breadth of information from a single trusted source.

No hysteria and no fan-boy hype, just facts and user reviews. I am sure that this valuable resource has saved lives and psyches. I have visited many other information and harm reduction sites and none compares to Erowid in the breadth and depth of their information.

Erowid is an amazing website that has more information on drugs than most people want or need, it offers you the chance to truly receive education about the drugs you may have been prescribed or are taking for recreational benefit.

When most governments around the world see that teaching abstinence as the only acceptable form of drug education, you need a website like erowid to pop up on google when you are searching for information on a drug.

Any other site such as webmd, would simply say to you that drugs are bad, and you shouldn't do them. This doesn't stop kids from guzzling cough syrup and anti-histamines for a cheap high, all this does is keep them unaware of dangerous dosage levels and other information that can reduce the risk of harm.

Using Erowid before using a drug is like putting on a condom before having sex. Knowing is half the battle, and in practice it keeps everyone in society safer.

Thank you Erowid for always being there.
