Just Visitors...


Let's Support EROWID

Founded in 1995, Erowid is a non-profit educational and harm-reduction organization and the leading web source for updated and unbiased info about psychoactive plants and chemicals and drug culture. As usual in September, Erowid has launched a new public support drive (Sept. 1 / Sept. 30th) trying to reach their goal of 1061 contributors during the month. Donations of $ 5 and higher will double, those $ 45 tripled and those $ 2000 quadrupled by a coinciding matching challenge. If you are an Erowid visitor and think that correct and scientific info about drugs (and first-hand experiences) is an important, essential topic, don't miss the occasion of supporting this brave, praiseworthy organization.
