One of the least biased and most informative websites on drugs (and not just recreational drugs). You think you know the truth about a drug? Not very likely if you learned this "truth" from D.A.R.E. or some other anti-personal-freedom / pro-totalitarianism group. Want the straight facts, go to erowid.org .
Productive member of society 1(PMS1): I happened to come across a substance of which I lack significant knowledge, and therefore, fear that use of said substance may result in undesirable side-effects. What might you suggest my course of action be?
PMS2: I would recomend searching the databases at erowid.org.
