LONDON (CelebrityAccess) — Glastonbury's organizers have announced that the festival has banned the legal high of nitrous oxide, AKA "laughing gas" from the event.
The primary objection to N20 the festival is the discarded silver canisters left behind by the gas's enthusiasts at the festival, with Liz Eliot, the co-ordinator of Glastonbury’s Green Fields noting in a blog post that Glastonbury “has become known as a place where people take nitrous oxide, a damaging drug which pollutes our beautiful field with noise, litter and N20 gas”.
According to The Independent, more than 2 tons of empty canisters were collected on the festival site following the last event.
Eliot also noted that a bursting canister of the gas was responsible for a 'major injury' at the festival last year.
“Each year we come together to share the magic of this truly wonderful festival. Please show your love for the event and each other by showing your appreciation of the land and our spiritual connection to it," Eliot added. “Help us – please do not bring nitrous oxide onto the site and support us by not using it in the King’s Meadow.” – Staff Writers
