KnowYourStuffNZ is a community organisation of volunteers operating in collaboration with the New Zealand Drug Foundation to provide drug related harm reduction services at events around New Zealand. These pages show KnowYourStuffNZ pill testing results for events attended between 1 April 2016 and 31 March 2020.
Click on the 'Pill testing results' tab above.
Use the dropdown menu to select what year's data you want to see. Select 'All' to view the results summed across all years
In the panel of checkboxes, select at least one substance from the list. These substances are what clients thought they had before their pills had been tested.
Once you have selected at least one substance, a chart and a table will appear. These show the testing results, i.e. what the pills (that clients thought contained the substance you selected) actually turned out to contain. For example, if you select 'Amphetamine', you will see the testing results for all of the pills that were thought by clients to contain Amphetamine.
The chart shows testing results grouped into drug families. These families are groupings of drugs that have similar structures and psychoactive effects.
The table shows the full list of drugs that were found ('Drug' column), the family that each drug is grouped into ('Drug family' column), and the number of pills that contained that drug ('Number of samples' column).
If you select more than one presumed substance, the testing results will be added up across all of those presumed substances.
