The Vaults of Erowid: Erowid is the prototype for the perfect drug education. A source of honest, straightforward information about plants, chemicals, and compounds. A place to send your uncle who wants to understand more about these “bath salts” he keeps hearing about, or a resource to understand and identify the drugs you’re buying. They’ve been around almost as long as the internet, and they keep making it better every year!
The Deoxyribonucleic Hyperdimension (Deoxy): Back in the late 1990s to early ‘aughts, this was the most psychedelically organized website on the web (at least the corners I traversed). There was no “home page” to speak of, no sidebars, and everything linked to everything else in a wandering chain of weird images, bizarre sound files, and purposefully labyrinthine browser frames. Surfing this page, back then, was almost a psychedelic experience in itself. Today, they’ve toned it all down a great extent, without getting rid of the powerful “everything you know is wrong” vibe. Deoxy is like psychedelic apologetics. It’s a great place to waste an afternoon filling your brain with obscure knowledge and culture-shattering ideas. A great site to “accidentally” leave in a co-worker’s bookmarks if you want to make them really think about the world. “The Red Pill,” in text and images.
Quit Day: For those looking to give up tobacco products and who aren’t lucky enough to be part of a psilocybin-assisted smoking cessation study, there’s quitday.org, which offers multiple tools to help heal your tobacco addiction and make your air cleaner for yourself AND your children.
