PREMIER Gla­dys Bere­jik­lian has ruled out pill test­ing as a way to make mu­sic fes­ti­vals safe, say­ing the only way to stay safe was to not take drugs.

“Any­one who ad­vo­cates pill test­ing is giv­ing the green light to drugs,” Ms Bere­jik­lian said.

“That is ab­so­lutely un­ac­cept­able. There is no such thing as a safe drug.”

Ms Bere­jik­lian said the death of two young par­ty­go­ers was a warn­ing to any­one con­tem­plat­ing tak­ing drugs. “Do not take them,” she said. “We have zero tol­er­ance to drugs. Pill test­ing is not a so­lu­tion, giv­ing a green light to tak­ing drugs is not a so­lu­tion.”
