More student unions set to offer drug-testing kits at universities, National Union of Students, says

A number of student unions – including Manchester, Newcastle and Sussex – already offer kits so students can test drugs before taking them to determine their toxicity.

More are looking to do the same, but smaller SUs need financial support, Ms Crossan Jory said. She added: “Student unions are taking it more seriously. And there are a lot more student unions that are looking at ways they can reduce harm and educate their students within the union.” … “[The number of students asking about kits] is definitely growing. I think one of the important things is that people are waking up to the idea that testing is a thing.” -[said the Loop, a non-profit organization]. In July 2018, the Home Office said “would not stand in the way” of drug testing at clubs and festivals.
