AUDIO: Drug rehabilitation expert slams festival pill testing proposal

By October 13, 2019 Recent News

A drug rehabilitation expert says implementing pill testing at festivals is ludicrous.

Four people were hospitalised after taking MDMA at Auckland’s Listen In concert on Friday night.

Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern is backing festival pill testing, but National and New Zealand First oppose it.

Shalom House CEO Peter Lyndon-James told Mike Hosking it will encourage more people to engage in pill taking, and potentially further drug consumption.
