Drug testing sheds light on 2020 Festival season

From Lately, 10:40 pm on 30 June 2020

A new survey has just been released documenting what drugs New Zealanders were taking at summer festivals this year. The research was carried out by ESR and is based on drugs seized by Police at festivals. 

This differs from the research carried out by Know Your Stuff NZ who offer voluntary anonymous testing where festival goers can take what they're carrying in for testing. 

The New Zealand Drug Foundation's Anna Tonks discusses the findings.
