The Loop is a non-for-profit organisation that allows individuals to test their drugs out before they take them. They originally began distributing their services at festivals around the UK, but as of last year The Loop expanded their operation to the general public in Bristol.

Bristol is currently ranking as the top city for students to take recreational drugs whilst at university. The most recent drug survey (2017), showed that out of 11,000 students across the country, 74.03 per cent of UWE students had taken ecstasy pills and 82.32 per cent had taken MDMA.
