We urge our community to keep in mind that drug markets are expansive and these substances may appear in locations other than the submissions’ origins. Always test before you ingest to avoid ingesting highly adulterated or misrepresented substances. If you test a misrepresented substance, submit your drug checking results to us to be featured in a #TestIt Alert. Purchase your DanceSafe drug checking kit here.
