You can support the DrugsData project in two ways:
DrugsData (formerly called EcstasyData) is a project of Erowid Center, and is co-sponsored by Isomer Design and DanceSafe. As the owning and managing organization, Erowid Center covers server space and bandwidth costs, and invests hundreds of staff hours per year on DrugsData administration, answering questions, and maintenance.
In 2016, Erowid Center dedicated over 700 staff hours to this project, and paid $67,500 in direct costs to the analytical toxicology lab that conducts the testing, in addition to $8,100 in other lab-related direct costs.DrugsData subsidizes the costs of testing that are not covered by co-pays. Currently, lab-related direct costs are US$140 per sample analyzed.
DrugsData tests all psychoactive drugs including ecstasy tablets, powders, research chemicals, novel pschoactive substances, and other drugs through our DEA-licensed laboratory. Ecstasy/Molly tablets cost $40. Recreational drug powder/crystal/blotter costs $100. Pharmaceuticals, supplements and all others cost $150 per analysis.Learn more
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
