There has been much discussion in Tasmania about the pros and cons of pill testing.
On Tuesday, Health Minister Michael Ferguson was drawn once again in Parliament to explain the government's anti-pill-testing stance and why they would not consider a trial of the technology.
Mr Ferguson has reiterated time and time again the government's stand on the issue, which is that there is no safe level of drug taking and they will not support a trial.
As a society, people are becoming more and more aware of their own health, thanks to technology. Most people you meet these days have Fitbits or other activity tracking devices on their wrists, or they have pedometers in their smartphones tracking their daily habits. Technology also exists to mitigate other behaviour that could be perceived as harmful, such as the rise in popularity of portable breathalysers to monitor blood alcohol levels.
The line up at mobile breathalyser stations at festivals such as the Falls Festival at Marion Bay is testament to how people are embracing harm mitigation strategies like this.
Technology has allowed us an insight into our lifestyles that we have never had before and it's natural that it would extend to harm mitigation such as pill testing.
While it is a tricky tightrope to walk - on one level the government has a valid point, illicit drug use can be inherently harmful, and cause irreversible damage in some cases.
But whatever side of the fence you sit on there's one thing that is abundantly clear - more discussion and healthy debate is needed.
There might be some pros and some cons, but we need to delve into that grey area, to see if it might be a fit for our state.
Pill testing might be the thing that saves someone's life - it might end up being the deterrent that stops a person from taking drugs in the first place.
And if it saves even one life - then it's something worth having a discussion over.
The discussion over pill testing is bigger than politics - let's talk.
