Yesterday, June 2nd, 2014, Sasha Shulgin left this world at the age of 88. The contributions of this great man are inestimable.

Around 5 pm PST on June 2, 2014, our long-time friend and role model Sasha Shulgin gently died after several years of battling various illnesses. He had recently been diagnosed with terminal liver cancer. Around 6:15 pm we received phone calls from two members of the Shulgin team letting us know the sad news. Much love to his family and those whose lives he touched, from the Erowid Crew. He died surrounded by friends and family.

Rest in peace Sasha. <3

Few have done more for the cause. In the distant future, Shulgin will be seen as a central figure in any discussion of the history psychedelics and consciousness exploration. A life very well lived, indeed...
