‘SUPER SKUNK’ YOBS TARGETING CHILDREN
Deadly dope ‘melts’ minds
SICK dealers are targeting school pupils with super strength cannabis.
The potent skunk is said to “melt” the minds of developing brains.
This 20% stronger dope is often in the drug THC, which has been linked to addiction and psychological dependency, say experts. Many types of skunk are also lower in the drug CBD, which counteracts THC and helps people feel less anxious.
Experts say this toxic mix may be contributing to the fact 87% of young people in drug treatment are cannabis users.
An NHS survey of 11 to 16-year-olds also said 24% of pupils said they had taken drugs. Thinktank Volteface said legalising cannabis would counter the problem.
Spokesman Paul North said: “If it’s legal kids do not see it as a cool thing to do.”
