Dancesafe Organization Shares Safe Ways to Test Drugs

The Non-profit organization DanceSafe has just released updated guidance on how to safely check drugs. The instructions are shipped out with every drug testing kit that it sells and can be accessed online as PDFs.

DanceSafe is acclaimed for offering adulterant screening to the rave and nightlife communities, based on harm reduction and peer-to-peer education principles. The group maintains a nonjudgmental stance to assist people who use drugs in making educated decisions about their health and safety, without condoning or condemning drug use.

The newly-advised guidance sheet clearly outlines that the unregulated nature of the recreational drug market makes using these substances a high-risk activity; “With no government regulation of illicit drug markets, it’s up to you — the individual consumer — to find out what’s inside of the products you purchase.”

In addition to selling testing kits and providing information, the organization also gives free water and electrolytes to prevent dehydration and heatstroke when high at events, supply earplugs to help ear health and give free safe sex tools to prevent unplanned pregnancies and the transmission of STIs.
