It's the 'Ask The Festival Lawyer' Podcast
In this week’s podcast, Cameron and Jason discuss the legality of "drug testing kits" under both state and federal law. Such kits may or may not qualify as "drug paraphernalia", depending on the laws of the individual state.
The two are joined by Mitchell Gomez, Executive Director of DanceSafe to discuss the practical reasons why persons may choose to use such a kit as well as to discuss how local law enforcement and festival promoters and owners view the issue of “drug checking” at their events.
Remember, If you have a question for the podcast or an idea for an episode, you can email Cameron and Jason at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Disclaimer: Although the Festival Lawyer is a lawyer he is not YOUR lawyer. The ATFL column gives general information about legal topics, NOT legal advice. The law is complex, varies a great deal from state to state, and each factual situation is different. Also, “The Festival Lawyer” is a fictional character. Think of the Festival Lawyer more like a legal spirit guide, encouraging you to educate and inform yourself.
