These substances are causing harm to our communities and it’s important that we, as a community, work together to remove these products from our streets. These drugs can be extremely dangerous and users can experience severe health issues. Police urge anyone using synthetic cannabis to stop and seek help.

Police will continue to work with the community and partner agencies to combat this drug and want to remind other drug dealers that we will hold them accountable.

If you know of anyone who is making or supplying synthetic cannabis then please contact your local Police. You can also provide information anonymously to Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
