Hi guys, i volunteer for a group called Open and i have created a survey to find out more information on synthetic highs (legal highs) i would greatly appreciate if you could take a few minutes to complete the survey. The survey is completely confidential. http://www.surveymonkey.com/s/ZG8H798
all illegal drugs should be legal then drug problems could be treated as medical problems not criminal ones, drug users could get pure clean drugs that are not mixed with lethal chemicals and they would know the doses they were taking so less chance of over dose.
I have read the following on the Shetland-News Website. Whilst reading it my first thought was how long is Shetland going to be a safe place. â€œCurrently there are 211 problem drugs users that are accessing community drugs services in Shetland. There is a year on year increase in users. â€œThere is a slight decrease in older drug takers that are using heroin. But younger people are using heroin more, when previously it was speed, ecstasy and cannabis that were the drugs of choice.â€ She added that it had become apparent that younger people in the isles are being targeted by dealers. I find Shetland is a very safe and friendly place to go about my daily business. Twenty years ago I am sure the people in Aberdeen and Fraserburgh thought the same - Until HEROIN took over. Now on a daily basis (In Aberdeen) you hear of muggings, rapes, murder's homes being broken into and what other crimes that you can get money from. I THINK IT IS TIME THAT WE TOOK A GOOD LOOK AT THOSE AROUND US AND START TO PHONE THE POLICE WITH OUR SUSPICIONS. I have phoned Crime Stoppers on three occasions about drink driver's, with two potential killer's being taken off the road. My question is do you people think Heroin is a problem and who should be sorting the problem out.
I've heard from a few people that the sniffer dogs are pretty ineffectual. They're probably a good detterent against potential baddies, but how many people have they actually been involved in catching. Whenever there's a 'bust', the dogs seem to be credited, even if the police were working on intelligence and the baddie would have been busted anyway. And how much do they cost?
