Two years on: The 'Drug & Substance Checking Act 2021'

From Nights, 9:20 pm on 16 November 2023

It's two years since the "Drug & Substance Checking Act 2021" was passed by parliament. That act made us one of the first countries in the world to make drug testing explicitly legal. It's no longer a crime to hand over - or receive - a sample at a testing centre. The goal: harm reduction in an unregulated and often unpredictable market. Casey Spearin is the general manager of the countries most well known testing organisation Know Your Stuff. She joins Mark to unpick the impact of the law change, what harm reduction actually means, and how they're preparing for a busy summer season.
