Review for Erowid Center, Grass Valley, CA, USA
So this is a great resource. Simply fantastic. Erowid lets you learn about the subjective experiences of substances, which gives you a point of reference for your own experience. Are you freaked out? Look it up on Erowid, find out you're not alone and this too shall pass, and then you feel better. It also provides unbiased reviews by individuals which will tell you: don't try this drug, it's awful and decreases your quality of life. Or about another substance which is awesome and enlightening, should you decide to try it. Real people tell you: don't do meth, but LSD can be really fun. Instead of the normal societal "drugs are bad!", Unless they come from a licensed professional and make you have weird dreams and thoughts of suicide :) those are okay drugs. It's a great resource for learning about drugs as an experience and helping in harm reduction through education, like drink water!! Especially using rave drugs in a place packed with people that's 100°. Simple peices of information like that which can reduce the uncomfortableness of an experience and make it a learning experience for yourself, rather than a regretful memory. So, five stars, for keeping me rooted during a transitional period and teaching me that psychedelics are like vacations, not like going to sleep. Only once in a while.
