My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for Erowid Center, Grass Valley, CA, USA
I enjoy experimenting with new psychedelic drugs. Erowid.org is a very helpful site because it presents a clear, unbiased description of the effects of all kinds of drugs. The site is designed in such a way that it neither promotes nor discourages the use of drugs, while operating under the theory that accurate information about drugs better ensures responsible use of drugs than do propaganda and smear campaigns. For nearly every drug under the sun, Erowid has a section ("vault") about it, in which the effects are described in great detail, and separated in to positive, neutral, and negative categories. Very helpful indeed!
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
Erowid helped me understand how psychedelic drugs work, and as a result I have had much better experiences with them.
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
I think that the "effects" section of drug vaults could be expanded upon, and given greater detail, especially for LSD, mescaline and psilocybin mushrooms.

I had known about it for a while, but never really gave it a look at first. It's surprising how many people have heard of Erowid, but how few know what it is really.
