  • Hard News: Know Your Stuff: getting real…, in reply to linger,

    Are punters given the full breakdown of what’s actually in their putative pills, or just the binary of whether or not it is what they think they should have?

    I've been helping KnowYourStuffNZ with the testing this summer.

    We are using both reagent testing and FT-IR spectroscopy. For 95% of samples, we can tell people what psychoactives are present.

    So we're not just telling people that what they have is not what they presumed, we can say something like "in the sample you have, we haven't detected MDMA, but we have detected X, Y, and Z". Then people can make their decision based on that information.
