Dear Erowid Readers: We're a small nonprofit that runs the top drug information website in the world. We have only 4 staff but serve 12 million users, and have costs like any big website: servers, power, office space, programs, and staff. To protect our independence, we don't run ads or take government funds. If everyone reading this gave $3, our fundraising would be done today. If Erowid is useful to you, take a minute to keep it online and ad-free another year!

Since the Dawn of primeval man, when Cro-Magnon first discovered that he could alter his consciousness by beatig himself over the head with his club, man has sought many paths to euphoric enjoyment. Some have involved religion or meditation, others drugs.

Along this line, opium has long been one of man's favorites. It is not only enjoyable, but it relieves the pain of clubbed heads.


By the Way...

Much of the information contained in this book is illegal to put into practical usage in the United States, Canada and most other western nations, except under government license.
