[Independent] Inside The Loop: The festival drug testing service trying to keep British revellers safe
Analysts found plaster of paris, monosodium glutamate, creatine, lactose, sugar and anti-malarial pills sold as drugs
The festival season is well underway, which means thousands of young people are gathering in fields to party – and many will use drugs.
Despite zero-tolerance policies on the entrances of British festivals, illegal substances inevitably make their way into the events.
In recognition of this, some have allowed harm reduction charity The Loop – a drug testing and counselling service – on site, in a bid to reduce ill health resulting from drug use.
