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.

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.

Erowid Vaults are the reason, 10 years ago, that I was informed on which chemical drugs to avoid. Informing me of the physiological effects and molecular structure of certain drugs (at age 15) I was able to deduce which drugs would be worth exploring and which just seemed risky or downright harmful. I learned safe shooting techniques and the hows and whats regarding overdoses. Friends sought my advice based on what I had gleaned studying the vaults. This is an indispensable resource for the world.
