Majority of Australians Surveyed Support Pill Testing

The Essential Report released a poll of 1,026 Australians asking about whether they support pill testing. 

The question, "Thinking about drug policy, do you support or oppose pill testing services (where trained counsellors provide risk reduction advice informed by on-site, laboratory analysis of people’s drugs)?" had 59 per cent total support, with 17 per cent total opposition. A large number of people voted "I don't know" making up just under 25 per cent of the vote. 

The results were released in the table below by Essential Report Tuesday.
