Politicians should stop playing Russian Roulette with drugs. 🛑
‘Drug testing’ gives false confidence and underlying approval.

The death of a woman at a rave at Auckland’s Bastion Point was due to MDMA, a coroner has ruled.

Karen Ellett, 43, died on April 15, 2018, at a party in the gun emplacement bunkers at Bastion Point.

Before her death, Ellett had performed in a Pop-Up Globe production having recently graduated from an acting course.

Her father Graham Ellett said it was a “disaster” she died “when she had so much potential”.

“She had everything going for her, and it was such a pity that her life was lost in this way,” he said.

His daughter’s death was unexpected and a complete shock, he said.

When she died, she had MDMA in her blood at a level of 2 milligrams per litre.

According to the toxicology report provided to the coroner, anything over 1mg could potentially be fatal, but 2mg/l fell “within the range associated with both recreational use and overdose fatalities”.
