Erowid Announcement #93
Sep 25, 2008
Friends of Erowid,

This month Earth & Fire were invited to write the lead essay for the Cato Institute's online publication, Cato Unbound. The article, titled "Towards a Culture of Responsible Psychoactive Drug Use" was then replied to by three invited experts, Jacob Sullum, Jonathan Caulkins, and Mark Kleiman. While the discussion that followed was steered towards a debate of drug legalization by the respondents, it was nonetheless an excellent opportunity to share with a new audience some of the principles that shape Erowid's development and further the discussion regarding high-quality, freely accessible information about psychoactives. Check it out at:

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

peace,
fire & earth
