Police at the festival have warned patrons not to light up joints in places they will more likely get caught.
The Daytime Forward Commander of Police at Woodford Festival, Senior Sergeant Richard Downie said people have been prosecuted every year for drug offences.
“If someone’s stupid enough to light up a joint in a laneway, or something like that, and we come across them, then yeah they’re going to be dealt with.”
Sergeant Downie said his squad specialises in drug-related work and that there may be sniffer dogs at the gates of the festival.
“We’re not out to get anyone, we’re just out to maintain the peace.”
