Several upcoming UK Festivals are allowing official drug testing

Drugs 26/05/2017

Big news. 

UK police have agreed to put people's health and safety above the fact that taking drugs is illegal. 

Because let's be real here, if you're going to get on the pingers, even if you're not a druggo, a music festival will probably be the place you'll do it.  

How do you think all these people who work in offices all day find the energy and stamina to dance for three days straight?

Just trance music. That's all.  

Imagine listening to an experimental electronic set while watching an hour long psychedelic visual of a human female inverting into herself in 3,000 different colours, whilst sober, confused, and dealing with somer gurner next to you saying they've had an epiphany and have finally figured out the meaning of the universe...  

Who could blame you for thinking WHERE THE MOLLY AT!? 

Whether you're into it or not, festivals are always going to have a lot of drugs.

We all know this. So it's huge the events and the law are coming around to looking after people instead of criminalising them.  

It’s really exciting that police are prioritizing health and safety over criminal justice at festivals.

Following an ever increasing number of drug-related deaths at festivals, Reading & Leeds and five other UK music festivals are allowing drug testing at their events this year. 

People will be able to find out exactly what they're taking without having to worry about consequences for admitting to having the drugs in their possession in the first place.

This is all thanks to an organisation called Loop -  it’s founder stated: “It’s really exciting that police are prioritizing health and safety over criminal justice at festivals.”

Hopefully New Zealand will stay woke, and follow suit...
