BRING PILL TESTING TO BRUNSWICK

Brunswick is home to more musicians and live music venues than almost anywhere else in Australia. The people of Brunswick want harm reduction strategies that keep people safe, rather than forcing people to suffer the consequences of a poor decision.

‘As a doctor, I believe pill testing is a necessity. Every year, young Australians lose their lives after taking dangerous pills.’

Twenty years of evidence from Europe, the United Kingdom, and two successful trials in Canberra demonstrate that pill testing reduces harm and protects young people.

In 2019, I began the process to legalise pill testing and I'm calling on the Victorian State Government to support it.

Pill testing empowers young people to make decisions in staying safe.

There are 20 years of evidence that shows pill testing reduces overdoses and the harms of illicit drug use.

There have also been two successful trials in Australia. It’s time to bring pill testing to Brunswick.
