FAM­ILY VI­O­LENCE

South Waikato News - - Your Paper, Your Place -

We had 17 re­ports of fam­ily vi­o­lence and do­mes­tic in­ci­dents for the week. Most of these calls have been in re­la­tion to in­ci­dents where peo­ple have been in­tox­i­cated via al­co­hol or from hav­ing syn­thetic cannabis.

De­spite syn­thetic cannabis be­ing made il­le­gal it con­tin­ues to be in ev­ery com­mu­nity through­out the coun­try. While the use of syn­thetic cannabis is not a wide­spread prob­lem in Toko­roa it is still caus­ing all sorts of var­ied re­ac­tions be­cause peo­ple don’t ac­tu­ally know what they are buy­ing.

My ad­vice is don’t touch the stuff and if you have any in­for­ma­tion in re­la­tion to the sale or sup­ply of syn­thetic cannabis in Toko­roa we are keen to hear about it.

You can either con­tact us at the sta­tion on 885 0100 or anony­mously via Crimestop­pers on 0800 555 111.
