Warning On Meth Laced Marijuana
POLICE ISSUE WARNING ON METH-LACED MARIJUANA
Police have issued a warning about crystal meth-laced marijuana.
While the police here have not actually seized any tainted marijuana, it is something officers are hearing on the street and wanted to warn the public about.
The police have received information that this is occurring in order to facilitate a new addiction to methamphetamines in those that are using marijuana recreationally or in a social capacity.
Methamphetamines can be consumed in a variety of ways, including, but not limited to, snorting, injecting and smoking.
Incorporating meth into a marijuana joint would be a simple matter and could easily be undetected by the unsuspecting user of the altered marijuana. Dealers will mix drugs in order to spark growth in the market. It's been done with other drugs to encourage people to get hooked.
The police say they are concerned about this as the use of meth, whether or not it's combined with marijuana, can cause extremely serious addiction problems.
They are encouraging members of the public to come forward if they have information on meth traffickers.
Community members who have concerns about suspicious persons or residences in their area may rest assured that all information received will be immediately reviewed and acted upon appropriately.
One of the main organizers of a pair of crystal meth community this month, said that the sessions were well attended by hundreds of students, residents, business owners and health professionals.
