Erowid Announcement #65
Mar 01, 2006
Friends of Erowid,

February was a very full month at Erowid with lots of site updates happening behind the scenes. Additionally, we've been watching psychedelic research that we've had a small hand in move slowly towards publication, we've been helping mediate in some continuing community controversies, and we spoke at a small conference presenting results from some of the same surveys we described at the LSD Symposium in Basel.

Most excitingly, an Erowid supporter has just offered a new matching grant. Details will follow in a week or so.

We welcome submissions, suggestions, criticisms, or corrections at submissions@erowid.org.

peace,
fire & earth
