Comment on When should we test for drugs? Queensland Council of Civil Liberties panel 30 July 2019 @LibertyQLD by David RayNEs https://westender.com.au/when-should-we-test-for-drugs-queensland-council-of-civil-liberties-panel-30-july-2019-libertyqld/#comment-19601 Fri, 19 Jul 2019 20:41:38 +0000 http://westender.com.au/?p=11315#comment-19601 Drug testing at festivals or other tetsing of illegal drugs has serious pitfalls. It ss wrong to suggest it will reduce the total harm from illegal drugs. firstly it gives the misleading impression that only impurities or high strength drugs can cause harm or even death.

MDMA (ecstasy) for example kills at random. It destablizes the body temperature control mechanism and individual reactions are just that, individual and unpredictable.

novice users perhaps persuaded to try drugs for the first time on the grounds that “they have been tested” will doubtless go on to use other drugs (untested) putting the smeselves at increased long term risk.

beware the siren calls of enthusiasts for testing, many of them want legalised/normalised drugs use for all, with much extended total harm across the population.
