For Energy Control and the other organizations involved, this event has provided a valuable opportunity to defend the usefulness of the Drug Checking Services in the United Nations and to representatives of several countries. Through the various presentations, the Drug Checking Services have proven to be a valid and necessary tool to reduce risks related to recreational drug use.
