But Police Association of NSW acting president Kevin Morton says the coronial inquest into the deaths of six young people who died after taking MDMA at music festivals had "turned into an unbalanced and unjust blame game".

"Any inference made by the coroner that our members have contributed to the deaths of festival-goers is offensive and wrong," he told reporters in Sydney on Wednesday.

In a statement he added: "There is no safe way to take drugs. Detecting (drug dealing) has to remain a priority. I call on the judicial system to back police in that process."

"(Rather) we would be in favour of a drug summit to allow expert debate and to go about this in a proper, balanced and fully thought-through manner," he said.

The Berejiklian government has refused to consider pill testing in NSW despite most experts recommending medically-supervised pill testing should be introduced at festivals and permanent venues.
