Knowledge Thirsty Thursdays: Drug Checking & Test Strips: What do Hot Spots and Chocolate Chip Cookies Have in Common?

August 10, 2023 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm

Buffs, reagent kits, drug alerts, and FTIR spectrometers – making informed, harm reduction-centered decisions can get complicated with the ever-changing jargon being thrown around. In today’s day and age, without access to a safe supply, it is difficult to know what exactly is in the substance you are buying – testing your drugs is an innovative way to mitigate the harms of prohibition and ensure your trip goes off without a hitch! This Knowledge Thirsty Thursday will explore the difference between currently available drug checking resources, accessibility of the resources to people across the spectrum of substance use, and what actually happens when you go and test your drugs. Harm reduction tips and anecdotes will be sprinkled throughout this Knowledge Thirsty Thursday event hosted by Alex from the SafeLink Harm Reduction Outreach Team.
