Drug dealer who poisoned music festivals sentenced to just 80 community service

Drug dealer Tina Phan, who was caught smuggling 394 ecstasy capsules in the Knockout Games of Destiny Festival in Sydney in December, has been sentenced to a ridiculous 80 hours community service.

19 year old Callum Brosnan died after taking drugs at the Festival but it is unknown if the drugs came from Phan.

18-year old Phan smuggled the drugs into the Festival in condoms inside her body. Her intention was to sell the drugs at the Festival.

Phan was waiting to study for a nursing career. She used her family’s financial struggles as the reason she was selling the drugs.

The Australian Festivals Association this week opened dialogue with State governments to put a pill testing system in place. Two people died from overdoses at the Beyond the Valley and Lost Paradise festivals over new years.

To really keep punters safe, Government also need to address the legal issue and stop our legal system being more lenient with drug dealers than they are with traffic fines.
