Some Labor and Greens MPs turned up for the tutorial but members of the government stayed away.

President of Harm Reduction Australia Gino Vumbaca admits pill testing doesn’t guarantee everyone will be safe.

“But because we can’t guarantee everybody will be safe it doesn’t mean you shouldn’t have it at all.”
