Burning Man: Last week, Fire and Earth spent a few days in the
dusty revelry on the playa to commemorate a friend who died earlier
this year. One of his last wishes was to have some of his ashes
included in the Temple burn. The 2016 Temple was one of our favorites
ever. We were honored to participate.
EcstasyData is an Erowid project that conducts laboratory testing of
ecstasy tablets, research chemicals, and other drugs. We publish
our results online along with analyses from other testing programs.
Erowid is often mentioned in articles and books. Mentions may include
positive or critical reviews, as well as citations of Erowid content.
An undated transcript of an interview of unknown provenance, likely
recorded for a documentary "about experiments that were conducted on
soldiers largely in the Fifties and Sixties." Focuses on the ethics
of human subject testing. Let us know if you recognize where this
transcript comes from.
"The chemical started to become more of a burden than an 'enhancer' as I previously thought. One night it happened, I had to leave for work in an hour, I stayed up all night on a-PHP losing track of time and redosing every 1-2 hours."
"My usual cough feels like it's scratching an itch down in the lower parts of my throat, and is unambiguously a dry cough. In
contrast, the 2C cough feels like a hollow cough, coming from my lungs rather than my throat."
"I weighed an amount of proscaline that shouldn't give any noticeable effects and is low enough, should it actually be the mislabeled and most potent chemical from the particular vendor I bought the stuff from, so that it wouldn't be an overdose."
As part of an early-aughts project, we began collecting resources,
links, and documents around the topic of children and families in
relationship to psychoactive substances. Maggie is a single mom
raising her 15-year-old daughter, Juju, who was also interviewed.
