Let’s ensure festival-goers are safer this summer. 

Drug checking saves lives and makes risky behaviour safer by allowing people to check what is in their drugs before they take them. Right now, it’s not widely available because drug checkers could be criminalised for providing that service.

We’re calling on Parliament to amend the Misuse of Drugs Act 1975 to ensure wider availability of drug checking to keep our people safer this summer. 

Please note that no drug is completely safe. The only way to have no risk is to not take drugs. Drug testing reduces the risk by ensuring people know what they're taking.
