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.

    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!!
