Drug checking is a free service which tests the safety of recreational drugs. It's available in New Zealand from KnowYourStuffNZ, a volunteer organisation which we support. 

Drug checking is harm reduction. It equips people who have a drug they intend to take with more objective information about it. It lets people use this information to reconsider how or even if they will take the substance they have.
