Media Release: Kids need health advice in the pill testing tent

Press Releases | Nov 12, 2019

The national campaign for safer, saner drug laws Take Control has welcomed the Victorian Ambulance Union’s support for pill testing but warns against removing the health and safety advice component.

Take Control spokesperson and Ted Noffs Foundation CEO Matt Noffs helped establish the first pill testing trial in Australia. Mr Noffs said:

“Delivering health and safety advice to young people in the pill testing tent is the most important part of the process. It’s that advice that can save lives and change behaviour.

“We welcome the support of the ambos who are on the frontline of our failed drug laws and look forward to discussing the details of a Victorian trial that can provide health and safety advice direct to young people.”
