Erowid Announcement #32
April 27, 2003
Greetings Friends,

Below are a few interesting additions that have been made to Erowid in the past month. Note the emergency scheduling of two new substances, AMT and 5-MeO-DIPT.

We continue to focus some of our time on fundraising as we try to figure out how best to continue this project for another year. We have just started a membership drive to try to reach 600 members by June 1st. If you have the ability to help, please consider joining the growing ranks of Erowid supporters.

We welcome submissions, suggestions, criticisms, or corrections at

fire, earth, & the Erowid crew


  1. 5-MeO-DiPT and AMT are Emergency Scheduled
    On April 4, 2003, the DEA issued its final order to temporarily place 5-MeO-DiPT and AMT in Schedule I. The temporary scheduling will last up to 18 months or until they permanently schedule the substances. This ruling makes both of these substances illegal to buy, sell, or possess without a DEA license.

  2. Nitrous Oxide and B-Vitamin Dangers
    Some information about the problems associated with heavy and/or regular Nitrous Oxide use.

  3. Sources en Francais [French Language Resources]
    Includes an index of Erowid pages translated into French, a link to the French-language journal articles from the Sandoz collection, and links to French-language websites. The two translated pages so far are the Mushroom Basics and the Psychedelic Crisis FAQ.

  4. New Vaults
    2C-E Vault
    Olanzapine Vault
    Venlafaxine (Effexor) Vault

  5. DXM Timeline

In the next few weeks, due to a lack of funding, the EcstasyData testing project will be implementing a required $20 co-pay for tablets sent in for testing.

Between March 20 and April 19, testing results were posted for six new tablets. Visit the submissions page to find out how to send in a tablet for testing.
