The drug testing debate has been raging strongly in New South Wales, mainly because a lot of the world is about it and we seem to be lagging behind.
Unharm look to open up the debate this Saturday (June 18) at The World Bar and deliver “an important message about harm minimsation.”
The night will see Unharm’s Director, Will Tregoning deliver a speech regarding drug testing and will be in accompaniment with well known DJs such as Dan Mac (Art vs Science).
Unharm’s Sally Cruse believes it’s time to try a different approach, saying “It’s clear that heavy enforcement operations are not keeping people safe.”
Ten countries including the US and UK have already implemented pill testing as a harm minimisation tactic and over the last two Australian summers alone seven people have died at music festivals, prompting Mike Baird to suggest the complete prohibition of music festivals.
You can head along on the night, entry’s $15 and it starts at 9pm.
