Thoughts?

Well you made the thread. Why don't you tell us your thoughts?

2 pairs of square brackets make links work btw.

Well I suppose 'Thoughts?' is a step up from 'Discuss?'

If people are going to take drugs then surely this is a good thing. The dealers mix drugs with all sort of crap.

I think it's a good idea, but it feels closer to some illegal drugs becoming legal and I'm not sure how I feel about that! It will happen regardless but I think if this makes it safer then it can't be bad!

I work at a University and our student union does this.

I think it's great. People are always going to take drugs and this makes it safer.

It makes drug use safer, which is good. Il/legal makes no difference, people will always find a way to use so we might as well make an effort to help them live through it.

They used to have drug testing packs at raves in the Netherlands many many moons ago, when I used to go out and take drugs there.

It's a good idea. People will always take drugs, but now it's more dangerous than ever with the explosion of legal highs and unscrupulous people who'll bulk out a tablet with washing powder and ibuprofen to make a quick buck.
