CDC [United States Centers for Disease Control] recommends drug-checking services

The CDC appears to be moving, at least in part, past a major barrier currently obstructs local harm reductionists interested in providing drug-checking and similar services: drug paraphernalia criminalization. 

Currently, the range of institutionalized US drug-checking services pales in comparison to what’s offered by organizations in Canada and some western European countries. The Centre for Drug Policy Evaluation in Toronto uses lab-based technologies, like mass spectrometry, to assess samples submitted by participants at the city’s safe consumptions site. It’s able to identify each substance present in a sample and approximate quantities, regardless of a participants’ suspicion.
