  1. Legal drug testing tents should be mandatory at large festivals. Many places are now doing it overseas and they are saving lives. You can’t stop people taking drugs, but you can make them as safe as possible.

    I am not saying this man took drugs, but it does happen at festivals as we all know.

    RIP, so very sad and tragic for his friends and family.
