Sadly yet another person has lost their life after falling ill to toxic drugs at Manchester dance event ‘The Warehouse Project’ on the Friday just passed. With five other attendees also hospitalised, Detective Inspector Aaron Duggan has confirmed they will be looking further into the matter stating:
“We have now launched an investigation to establish the circumstances leading up to his death. It is possible that there may be a particularly bad batch of drugs out there in the community and that is a concern to us.”
The Warehouse Project has responded to the sad news by urging patrons to take the proper precautions in the case they were to take drugs by stating:
“The Warehouse Project operates a zero tolerance policy with regards to drugs. However if you have taken something and start to feel unwell please tell a member of staff.”
DJ’s playing on the night included Axwell, Thomas Gold, Alan Braxe, Armand Van Helden, Mark Knight and more. A sad start to an exciting project and a stern warning for punters to exercise precaution in order to avoid tragedy. The victims life was only 30 years young.
This follows on from other sad incidents of deaths due to toxic drugs across the globe including Australia’s own hardstyle festival Defqon 1.
It certainly seems like its time for governments to change their approach from drug enforcement to drug education.
