DrugChecking, also called pill testing, is a process used to identify substances in illicitly traded products, such as ecstacy, speed or cocaine. Its aim is to prevent users from particularly dangerous cuts.
Check recently tested drugs for ingredients, amounts and strength.
Drugchecking is conducted by government-funded organisations in countries like Austria, Switzerland, Netherlands, Spain and France, but the results are spread across multiple websites.
KnowDrugs aggregates those drugchecking results and lets you search and filter them for name, location and substances.
The KnowDrugs app requires a minimum amount of permissions on your Android phone or iPhone and does not ask you to log-in or authenticate in any way.
