Advice to dance partygoers

A considerable number of young New Zealanders in the 2000s take drugs, especially ecstasy and fantasy, when going to dance parties. This pamphlet was prepared by the Ministry of Health to provide partygoers with advice about the dangers of such drugs and how, if they choose to use them, to do so more safely. The pamphlet especially warned about the problems of heatstroke. Scroll through five pages of the pamphlet. The complete document is available on the Ministry of Health's website.
