Erowid Monthly
We hope July is going well for everyone. Read on to see a few things that Erowid has been working on.

Survey for women who have used psilocybin-containing mushrooms:
The Johns Hopkins Psilocybin Research Project is conducting a survey of adult women who have had a profound experience with psilocybin mushrooms. The survey is an attempt to gain gender balance after a previous survey received significantly more responses from men than from women. If you qualify, help them out by responding!
Drug Geek Factlet
Florida's Office of Vital Statistics reported that more than 171,300 deaths occurred in Florida in 2009. The Florida Department of Law Enforcement states that 7 of these deaths included MDMA (Ecstasy) as a causal agent, 1,185 included oxycodone, and over 1,000 included benzodiazepines such as Alprazolam (Xanax). Zero deaths were caused by cannabinoids.

5-MeO-DMT and DMT (the common name for N,N-DMT) are entirely different substances. Shortening 5-MeO-DMT to "DMT" can present some serious problems. 5-MeO-DMT is also headed for Schedule I.
Research has indicated that a low dose of a neurotoxin can provide protection against more severe damage from a later dose of the same substance. This article examines this phenomenon in relation to MDMA.
