Pill testing success – punters ditch their dodgy pills
The second pill testing trial was completed at the Groovin The Moo festival in Canberra on Sunday. All states Health Ministers were invited to observe how it worked. WA declined.

Oliver Peterson spoke to the President of Harm Reduction Australia Gino Vumbaca about the results of the trial.
