A second pill-testing trial at an Australian music festival is likely to take place following its success at Canberra's Groovin the Moo, a leading drug expert has said. The president of Harm Reduction Australia, Gino Vumbaca,  said it's a matter of when, not if, that a second trial would take place after the first round of testing in the country happened last weekend.

"I think that would be a natural conclusion to draw. I know there's been a lot of discussion with governments, but most governments outside the ACT have taken a position against it, but now they have an understanding of how it operates," he said. "What they should do is reopen political discussion on pill testing, now there's Australian-based evidence."
