Dear Erowid Readers: We're a small nonprofit that runs the top drug information website in the world. We have only 4 staff but serve 12 million users, and have costs like any big website: servers, power, office space, programs, and staff. To protect our independence, we don't run ads or take government funds. If everyone reading this gave $3, our fundraising would be done today. If Erowid is useful to you, take a minute to keep it online and ad-free another year!

Am I Under Arrest? Am I Free to Go?
Police in Modern America
Know your rights.
Always be polite and courteous to police.
Ask to call your lawyer: never talk about, admit or deny anything.
Do not consent to a search unless the police have a warrant. Be extremely clear.
To assert in any case that a man must be absolutely
cut off from society because he is absolutely evil
amounts to saying that society is absolutely good,
and no-one in his right mind will believe this today.
--- Albert Camus (1913-1960)
