“Drug checking effectively regulates a market with no inherit moral standards”


We are happy to announce the winner of our second quarterly lab analysis contest in which every customer had the chance to win €120-worth qualitative and quantitative analysis at Energy Control. Since September we received 245 entries and we congratulate every participant for expressing they arguments for harm reduction.

The winner for the most convincing argument in favour of drug checking:

It effectively regulates a market with no inherit moral standards – apart from, of course, to make money – to hold the vendors of these drugs accountable would be to generally make for a safer environment for drug users (even for those who go without testing their drugs), as dealers would be aware of testing, and thus adjust their product quality to meet the standards of the tests. An abundance of fake drugs, particularly benzodiazepines have been floating around Australia (where I am from), most of these people have no idea what they have, if the vendors were to be held accountable, then the standard would increase markedly. It holds supplier accountable, making for a safer environment for everyone, even for those who choose for whatever reason to not test their drugs.

We have reached out to the winner by email with the code to redeem at Energy Control. Congratulations!

Honorable mentions:

  • Small price, huge results

  • I aint playing around with no fakerinos

  • Test to tylko 30 zlotych (bądź parę groszy!) a zdrówko jest bezcenne

Thank you to all the participants!

The next quarterly contest starts today, try your luck!
