A festival party-goer got a driving ban of one year after being caught with MDMA in her system two days after she had eaten the drug during a music festival.

Courtney Crimston, 19, was found guilty of drug use after her car was stopped less than three miles from her home last October.

The 19-year-old tested positive in an oral fluid test, where forensic analysis confirmed that she had ecstasy in her blood, according to the Daily Telegraph.

It turned out that the MDMA was still in the system of Mrs. Crimston two days after she consumed it when she attended the Listen Out music festival at Centennial Park in Sydney last September.

The police asked if they had used drugs, to which they said: "I had two MDMA (tablets) at the Listen Out festival on the weekend," read the agreed police facts.

The 19-year-old was sentenced to a conditional release of 12 months without conditions by Sutherland's local court.

Mrs Crimston participated in the Traffic Offenders Rehabilitation Program and said that she now realizes that her offense is a serious cause & # 39; and that she would learn from this mistake.

Last year, the police sued 159 people for drug-related crimes at the Listen Out music festival.

154 people were charged with drug possession and five were charged with drug offenses.

& # 39; In general, festival goers were very good and enjoyed the event, but there seems to be a small part of the community that despite our warnings still possesses and processes illegal substances, & # 39; Inspector Karen McCarthy said at the time.

This comes after two drug-related deaths at the Defqon.1 music festival in Penrith last year.

WHAT IS MDMA?

3,4-methylenedioxy-methamphetamine (MDMA) is a synthetic drug similar to stimulants and hallucinogens, with effects of seemingly increased energy and distorted sensory and time perception.

It is also known as the medication Ecstasy or Molly.

It is usually swallowed as a capsule or tablet, but it can also be consumed in liquid or powder form.

Health effects of the drug are nausea, muscle cramps, balanced teeth, blurred vision, chills and sweating.

Users can also experience irritability, aggression, anxiety, sleep problems, reduced appetite, memory problems, impulsivity and decreased interest in sex.

MDMA consumption can also lead to liver, kidney or heart failure.

MDMA is a popular drug in night clubs, dance parties and music festivals.
