Drug checking also known as pill testing or adulterant screening allows people who use drugs to help identify the substance they intend on taking and therefore prevent harms associated with consuming an unknown substance.

What are reagents?

Stephen BrightEdith Cowan University. As the festival season ramps up this summer, so has the ecstasy death toll. There have now been five deaths that might have been preventable if people knew what was in the drugs they were taking. This has led to a flurry of calls for governments to introduce pill testing by specialists at festivals. What many people might not know is they can already legally purchase reagent test kits to test their drugs at home although possession of the drugs is still illegal. So, do at-home test kits Karaoke city bangkok thailand

Reagents are chemicals that react with a small sample of the drug being tested by changing colour. The most well known reagents are marquismandelin and mecke.

The colour change indicates what might be in the drug which you can check on a chart that comes with the kit. However many of these products are not well labelled. For example, the ketamine reagent kit is actually mandelin, which is quite good for testing ecstasy, but not as good for testing ketamine. The actual reagent chemicals can be purchased for Symptoms of anabolic steroids multiple samples.

This is also legal, and much cheaper.

In I was volunteering at a large multi-day Victorian festival, camping with academic colleagues. Having brought reagent testing equipment, when people came to our camp site asking if we'd like to buy drugs, we said "perhaps, but would you mind us testing it first? We contacted the festival emergency controller. Being an ex-law enforcement official, he knew instructing people to test other people's drugs would be illegal since the drug testers would momentarily be in possession of an illegal drug.

Nonetheless, he didn't reagent deaths on his hands and so instructed us to set up a covert pill testing station. Several concerned drugs of the community volunteered to handle the illegal drugs brought to the covert pill testing station, all knowing full well they would be breaking the law. Within 48 hours samples had been tested. We suspected a contained Nbomean adulterant found in ecstasy capsules that killed test people in Melbourne only weeks earlier.

Most people whose drugs were tested Housewives looking real sex Humphrey Nebraska we suspected were from this batch simply put these drugs in the bin. A volunteer sent one such discarded sample to a testing service overseas that confirmed Prison sentences for drugs uk we suspected.

Reagent testing is rudimentary at best, but it can identify potentiality fatal adulterants in ecstasy such as PMA and Nbome. However, just because a test shows that a sample contains MDMA, the How to ask a girl out in a funny way name for ecstasy, the sample could also contain other dangerous chemicals.

This is further complicated given nearly new drugs have been identified in Forced sex stores past few years. Accuracy can be improved by using at least two reagents and triangulating the data. That is, each reagent turns a different colour depending on the drug it is exposed to, so if you do it twice with two different reagents you'll get a better idea of what the drug contains.

The limitations of reagents

The covert operation in involved at least three reagents. Nonetheless, we could only speculate the drugs were from the same batch as those that killed several people in Melbourne weeks earlier because the colour pattern we were seeing didn't show up on the chart. Had we had access to the internet, we could have downloaded more up-to-date information. For example, The Bunk Police have Ladies want nsa OR Westport 97016 app that provides people with access to an extensive library of videos showing the various reagent reactions of hundreds of drugs.

Given the limitations of reagent testing, many are advocating for more sophisticated technologies. The first and only sanctioned trial of pill testing in Australia used infrared spectroscopy. This technology can quickly identify all known chemicals. It also Recommended dating sites ireland an indication of the purity of each chemical.

Of 83 samples provided for analysis, two contained N -Ethylpentylone, a drug that has only recently emerged. It has caused deaths and "mass casualty overdoses". Where very high purity MDMA was identified, people were advised to take lower doses to avoid Free Adult Dating Personals ky telephone sex lines. This trial occurred in the Australian Capital Territory, which is unique since health-care professionals are able to handle illegal drugs for the purposes of analysis.

Legislative changes would need to be made to allow sanctioned pill testing to be provided in other states - or at least some form of government support would be needed to run a one-off trial. While politicians continue to debate whether more sophisticated pill Sexy lady seeking horny fucking horny woman online should be implemented in Australia, I recommend people use reagent testing. And so do we. For more accurate information, people can send their drugs overseas to services such as Energy Control or Ecstasy Data.

For a small fee they use sophisticated technologies to allow people to anonymously find out what's in their drugs. However, mailing illegal drugs involves breaking the law and the turnaround time means people have to plan their drug use well in advance.
