1. Dear Drugs-Forum readers: We are a small non-profit that runs one of the most read drug information & addiction help websites in the world. We serve over 4 million readers per month, and have costs like all popular websites: servers, hosting, licenses and software. To protect our independence we do not run ads. We take no government funds. We run on donations which average $25. If everyone reading this would donate $5 then this fund raiser would be done in an hour. If Drugs-Forum is useful to you, take one minute to keep it online another year by donating whatever you can today. Donations are currently not sufficient to pay our bills and keep the site up. Your help is most welcome. Thank you.

Shulgin's Lab notes

Shulgin's Lab notes

  1. Alfa
    After several years of consideration and preparation, the first of Alexander Shulgin's (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alexander_Shulgin) lab books has been scanned and put online. The lab books contain detailed experience reports about a wide variety of substances as well as notes on chemical processes, formulas, sketches, and hand-drawn graphs.
    When funding appeared for the project, the Shulgins' trusted assistants, gregM and Tania, began the labor intensive process of redacting the names of individuals whose privacy should be protected.
    The scanning is being facilitated by Archive.org and performed by gregM and Raj Kumar.
    There is nothing more pleasing to me than seeing history preserved and shared, and Alexander 'Sasha' Shulgin's notebooks are certainly worth preserving - no matter what your opinion on drugs/psychedelics. Shulgin's chemical innovation, self-testing and reporting of effects of various chemicals is a legendary piece of the history of exploration of 'inner space' - and to be able to view his hand-written notes is quite a thrill.

    A stunningly beautiful glimpse at the mind of a brilliant psychonaut. I love seeing the scrawled notes on DOW pages, with formal trip-reports occasionally taped into the journal. This is one of the most awe-inspiring, valuable documents in the archive, in any archive for that matter.
