Drug use at festival revealed.

So figures have just been revealed showing the extent of drug use at British festivals.
According to statistics, Glasto is the festival with the most drugs, with the amount seized coming to £44,869.
Isle of Wight Festival's came in second at £27,410, and Bestival third, at £18,479.
According to the article: "In total, at the ten major festivals — Glastonbury, Isle of Wight Festival, Bestival, V, Download, Sonisphere, Leeds, Reading, Womad and Wireless — the total value of seized drugs last year was £101,681."
And it seems cocaine and MDMA are the most in demand.
So I am not stupid, I know drugs are readily available at festivals, but still, reading these figures always scares me. I know friends who have took things at festivals, and it continues to bother me. I am just waiting for the day when they consume something pumped full of rat poison or something and have a serious accident...:(.
I personally do not touch any drugs, and I plan to stay this way.
Luckily, I have never been offered them either.
But I just wondered what your personal experience has been with drugs at festivals?
Do you take them?
Do your friends take them?
Or do you avoid them?
Even if you avoid them - have you been exposed to them? Have you seen them being took, or have you even been offered them?
I look forward to an interesting discussion.
