Answers to questions we get asked by journalists a lot
These might save you an email.
What substances have you been finding?
We post alerts and information about any issues of concern on our blog throughout the festival season, on our Latest News page.
At the end of each season, results are collated and posted to Our Results. Historic results and comparisons to previous years are also available on this page.
If you would like to be added to our media list to receive our occasional press releases, please contact us.
At this stage we cannot provide results per event.
What events will you be going to?
We can’t share details of what events we will be attending without the express permission of the organisers. If you have a specific event in mind, talk to the event’s media team.
Can I film inside your tent?
We guarantee privacy to our clients. No cameras are permitted inside the testing area without the express permission of clients and the organiser of the event.
Who runs the service?
We are an independent, volunteer-run organisation. Visit our About Us section to see who we are.
We partner with the NZ Drug Foundation, who have provided us with the use of their spectrometer, but we are independent of them. Please do not credit our work solely to NZ Drug Foundation, as many journalists have done.
When referring to our partnership, the correct reference is “KnowYourStuffNZ, operating in partnership with the NZ Drug Foundation.. “
