Talk to your teens about how meth can hurt them or risk finding out the hard way.
Last week, police raided houses in Linden as part of a four-month investigation into the alleged supply and distribution of meth by members of the Porirua Mongrel Mob.
Police claimed one place under surveillance had hundreds of visits from suspected customers.
This drug’s ability to develop a few curious puffs into an addiction can catch all sorts of people in all sorts of places off guard.
The day after the meth raids, police announced a nationwide plan to boost their numbers, which included the addition of 62 more constables for the Wellington district.
It is likely some will be added to ranks in the Porirua Basin.
That’s good news, what with the recent closing or cutting down of open hours at some police stations.
But the law will need help from within communities to stop things going from bad to worse for the next generation.
