The Oban Times - - Letters -

IT IS im­pos­si­ble to over­state the dam­age that il­le­gal drugs do to our com­mu­ni­ties. The chaos is not only caused to those un­for­tu­nates who find them­selves ad­dicted to dan­ger­ous sub­stances but is seen in in­creased crime rates as peo­ple break the law to feed their habits. It is against this back­drop that the un­ceas­ing strug­gle to com­bat the deal­ers and their per­ni­cious trade must be viewed. And it is grat­i­fy­ing that our lo­cal po­lice are this week re­port­ing suc­cesses in de­grad­ing the abil­ity of th­ese par­a­sites to ped­dle their drugs.

How­ever, we also com­mend the many other bod­ies and in­di­vid­u­als in­volved in this cam­paign: it is gen­uinely a multi-agency ap­proach that is now pay­ing div­i­dends.
