A boy falls sick after using illicit drugs in Craven

The police are a warning to people, more expecially the young ones of the danger in taking and using illicit drugs after a schoolboy from craven district fell seriously ill earlier this week

The boy smoked what we believed was cannabis, and was taken to the hospital after he became sick. 
Hospital tests showed traces of other drugs in his bloodstream including MDMA, cocaine and opiates along with the cannabis. He was discharged the same day.
It is believed those dealing in drugs are mixing stronger substances with cannabis when selling to young people in order for them to get addicted.
Craven Neighbourhood Policing Sergeant Paul Evans, said:
“We were deeply saddened to hear of this story concerning one of our young people.
“Illegal drugs are illegal for a reason, they are dangerous and can become even more toxic when mixed with other substances. A drug dealer is never going, to be honest with you about the contents of your purchase and will often add other items to either bulk out their products or in cases, such as this, attempt to get the user addicted.
“Taking illegal drugs may seem like harmless fun but it does have consequences. Possessing such items could land you with a criminal record which will stay with you for life making it difficult to follow some career paths and even travel to some countries. Taking the drugs could lead to a hospital admission or worse still they could kill you.
“People who start taking drugs that are widely deemed softer can soon become addicted and move on to harder more damaging substances. This, in turn, can lead to other issues such as criminality as users attempt to fund their habit.”
“The safety, health and wellbeing of our young people is of utmost importance and we would urge anyone who has information on who is responsible for dealing drugs in our neighbourhoods to contact us with information. If you would prefer to provide information anonymously the independent charity Crimestoppers can be contacted on 0800 555 111.
“I would urge parents and carers of youngsters to take some time speaking to those in their care about the dangers of drugs.”
