What happens when the apocalypse stops the party

Due to the current pandemic, all festivals, events, and gatherings have been cancelled. KnowYourStuffNZ’s drug checking service is not considered essential, so we won’t have a lot of testing to do over the next few weeks/months.
This means:

  • No festival/event-based drug checking service will be available
  • No static testing services will be offered.

We will go back to providing drug checking when New Zealand returns to Alert Level 2 or lower.

We will still be working though! We will be continuing to provide advice and information to help reduce drug related harm by:

  • Sharing with you advice about  drug harm reduction for various substances 
  • Analysing and sharing the data from the 2019/20 festival season
  • Providing individually tailored advice via email and messaging services to anyone who needs it
  • Warning people about any identified dangerous substances out there
  • Continuing to advocate for harm reduction as best practice for drug responses in New Zealand

If you have any drug-related questions, please get in touch with us via our various social media or the contact page on our website.
