Even the PM would support legal drug checking

New Zealand’s Prime Minister, Bill English, is socially conservative. Yet when asked if he thought drug checking at festivals was a good idea, he said “I suppose it is – as long as it’s legal.”

“It means people can see what they’re taking is dangerous.”

 

“People who are taking drugs… I’m sure they understand what’s legal and what isn’t and the testing has to be as well.”

 

So let’s get on with bringing our 42-year-old drug laws into line with current policy and the views of those who make it.
