‘Will Drug Testing Tents at Music Festivals Improve Safety?’

It’s the summer and for hundreds of thousands that means a trip to a music festival. But along with beer and bands, illegal substances also feature for many gig goers.

Now the Boomtown Fair in Hampshire has become one of the first festivals to offer on-site drug testing. But with drug deaths at a record high, is this a pragmatic solution prioritising safety over the law or effectively condoning illegal drug use?

  1. interesting read and i agree we need to get a testing tent! it doesn’t necessarily mean that we will be legalising drugs, it just means that we need to focus on the reality that the young will consume drugs and that we should focus on harm reduction and aim to reduce the risk!!
    Have a look at my recent posts and give me some feedback if theres anything you would like me to write about aswell!
