Erowid Announcement #5
April 22, 1999
Hey Friends,

We have a couple of big projects we've been trying to get finished up to announce, but it doesn't look like they're going to make it in time for this announcement. So, in the meantime, we're going to go ahead and let you know about a few smaller things we've added in the last 6 weeks. I expect that we'll have another announcement out in about 2 weeks to finally let you know about the bigger new stuff.

We welcome submissions, suggestions, criticisms, or corrections at For a full list of all files added in chronological order, see



  1. Close Encounters of the Panaeolus Kind

    This article by John W. Allen is an inquiry into the field identification of a psychoactive agaric commonly referred to as the "Weed Mushroom," Panaeolus subbalteatus.

  2. GHB Overdose Stories & Precautions

    These two pages are an attempt to help increase safety around the use of GHB within the community. Some people doubt the claims that GHB can be dangerous if not used properly or with the appropriate precautions. The first page is a description of a handfull of GHB overdoses we have witnessed first-hand. The second page is our recommendations for precautions and safeguards which the community can employ to reduce the risks.

  3. Chem Compare Update

    Chem compare now displays a full URL that can be used to directly link to a comparison between two molecules + some minor bug fixes.

  4. DPT Experiences

    Two new reports about experiences with DPT.

  5. Journal Articles & Abstracts

    Many new additions to the Journal Articles & Abstracts Vault. The new entries can be found by looking through the what's new page.

  6. Stephen Gaskin

    Added Stephen Gaskin to the Character Vaults.

  7. 2C-T-2 Vault

    A new vault, still sparse, but it has a small amount of information including an experience report and an image.

  8. Tons of new books

    Dozens of new entheogen related books have been added to our online library. For a full list of these, see the what's new file.
