What’s in the pill?

Campaign

The 'What’s in the Pill?’ campaign is the result of a collaboration between three Dublin Universities – DIT, TCD, and UCD and the Ana Liffey Drug Project. Resources created include posters and a factsheet, which will be distributed on campus as well as promoted on social media and via the drugs.ie website.

We are now extending this campaign to other 3rd level institutes nationwide by supplying customised PDF versions of the poster and factsheet, free of charge. If you supply us with a transparent PNG version of your college logo, we can supply you with the finished designs for print. To date, other colleges also involved are IT Sligo, St. Patrick's College, Maynooth University and NCAD. To get involved contact info@drugs.ie.

Information

The campaign features the following harm reduction information:

A number of pills sold as ecstasy have been tested and found to contain substances other than MDMA. MDMA, and many of these substances, have been linked to hospitalisations, deaths and possible mental health issues. There is no way of telling what is in a pill just by looking at it. IT'S ALWAYS SAFEST NOT TO TAKE UNKNOWN OR ILLICIT DRUGS AT ALL. If you do take a pill ...

If you are concerned about a substance that you or a friend have taken:

The Students' Union in no way condones the use of illegal drugs.
