Late last week the ACT Government announced that they will support a six-month pilot for a fixed-site pill testing service to determine service demand and community support for a future permanent fixed-site pill testing service in the Territory.  More news to come.

With New Zealand legalising pill testing at music festivals in April this year, it appears that momentum is gathering in some corners for drug checking services to be implemented, especially as festivals and events begin to re-emerge with a highly variable and unpredictable illicit drug market post-pandemic.
