The death of a young man at the weekend's Strawberry Fields music festival is a terrible tragedy that we never want to see repeated.
But shutting down the festival itself is not the answer.
There were thousands of people at Tocumwal over the past few days, having a perfectly legal good time. Many of them came from outside the area, bringing their spending money to businesses in the region that welcome them every year.
The part that is not welcome is the dangerous use of drugs.
Our sympathies go out to the family of the 24-year-old man who died on Sunday.
He reportedly took a cocktail of substances including GHB (gamma hydroxybutyrate), MDMA and cocaine.
We don't know the circumstances around his decision to take those drugs, but we can only hope news of the tragic result get to those who may choose to do the same thing.
The risk is simply not worth dying for a high.
NSW Premier Gladys Berejiklian yesterday held firm on her stance on pill testing, saying the death at Strawberry Fields would not change the government's decision to not allow the practice.
There are also serious concerns with sniffer dogs because young people scared of getting caught with drugs make the silly choice to take them all at once and get their money's worth.
Even if it is a very and very wrong dangerous choice these drug users are making, the moral high ground is not a place we need to be standing when it comes to actions that could put lives at risk.
Murray River police district commander Acting Superintendent Andrew Spliet revealed on Monday that there were 95 drug arrests at Strawberry Fields and tried to get across the message that the drugs are harmful.
"It's disappointing that despite the warnings, we continue to detect the possession and supply of these illicit substances," he said.
Sadly, many young drug users do not want to listen to authority figures like the police, but they need to listen to someone before they too make the tragic decision to attempt taking dangerous cocktails of substances that could end their lives.
