Drug checking encompasses a range of technologies, with the most accessible one being reagent tests. Different chemical mixtures (reagents) can be applied to drug samples in order to reduce your chance of taking the wrong drug. Based on the color reaction (or lack thereof) from a test, you’ll have a better idea of the likelihood that you have the correct drug.
The MDMA and LSD markets, among others, are notoriously problematic. Whether you’re using an illicit drug or a research chemical, reagents should nearly always be employed. Some of the adulterants that have been found in the aforementioned markets can be easily dangerous or deadly, such as 25i-NBOMe and PMA.

The Drug Classroom (TDC) is dedicated to providing the type of drug education everyone should have. Drugs are never going to leave our society and there has never been a society free from drugs.
Therefore, it only makes sense to provide real education free from propaganda.
TDC doesn’t advocate drug use. Rather, we operate with the intention of reducing the harm some substances can bring.
