If you were a drug user would you walk up to a Police drug bin at a music festival to make a deposit? [More Sun Opposite Saturn stories]
It’s a bit conspicuous
The police have recently back flipped over using sniffer dogs at youth festivals after a young woman died. The woman swallowed Ecstasy to avoid detection by sniffer dogs.
Personal Intrusion – Police State?
Police are claiming the roll out of their new drug bin was a success at yesterdays Rockit Festival. The new drug bins apparently produced quantities of icing sugar and flour. Apparently there was also a small amount of cannabis and Ecstasy. The use of the new drug bins will need further validation otherwise their benefit is at least a psychological deterrent for youth bringing drugs to concerts.
It seems that this Government ‘social engineering experiement’ has only confirmed a gap in understanding the youth of today. Although the bins present good options for youth at these concerts there presence may have also underestimated the intelligence of our young people.
