Should the public have access to independent analysis of the products they consume?
The vast majority of analyses of over-the-counter, prescription, and recreational drugs are performed in secret with no independent oversite or review. No other historical record, free from politically-controlled agencies, is currently available in North America nor most other parts of the world.
DrugsData, a project of Erowid Center, needs the support of professionals, students, parents, individuals with means, and small foundations for a total yearly budget of around $120,000 USD. Erowid Center's general budget and the co-pays we require fund most of this cost.Donate now
It's important that samples submitted to this testing program be no more than 100 mg of material (ideally 20 to 50 mg). Keep in mind that just enough to *half* fill a capsule is more than enough. There is no advantage to sending more material, and samples that are too heavy may be delayed or require additional payment.
