It's Erowid's Annual Public Support Drive!
We need 1,229 unique donations of $5 or higher in September

Support accurate information--for education, harm reduction,
benefit enhancement, and policy reform. Please donate!
Government
By far the most numerous and most flagrant violations of personal liberty and individual
rights are performed by governments ... The major crimes throughout history, the ones
executed on the largest scale, have been committed not by individuals or bands of individuals
but by governments, as a deliberate policy of those governments ...that is, by the official
representatives of governments, acting in their official capacity.
