Erowid Announcement #69
Jul 25, 2006
Friends of Erowid,

Whew, it's been extremely hot here at Erowid HQ, getting to around 110F (43.3C) several days in the last week. We hope that you're all keeping cool out there.

If you haven't already seen it, be sure to check out the new psilocybin study results published in early July (item #1 below). In the late 1990s, when this research was first being considered, we worked with the Council on Spiritual Practices who sponsored the study. It's exciting to see this project, which we had some tiny part in, finally completed and published. They did a marvelous job.

We have an exciting new membership gift this month. Hand-blown glass MDMA molecules made by visionary artist Ed Steckley. Show your support of Erowid by donating at the $125 level or higher and you can receive one of these great conversation pieces. :)

As always, we welcome submissions, suggestions, criticisms, or corrections at
