MANDRAKE Testing Facilities, Manchester Metropolitan University (2017)

The state-of-the-art, fully equipped forensic laboratory, is working on a number of intelligence sharing projects to safeguard communities through drug awareness & harm-reduction – most recently the chemical analysis of Spice used within the city centre homeless community, which has led to the publication of a GM-wide Spice Warning Information Leaflet (March 2017) and Professional Briefing (July 2017) for health, drug and homeless support service providers.
