Drugs being distributed by post

By Maria Pepper

The postal service is increasingly being used for the distribution of drugs following the closure of Head Shops, a member of Wexford's Joint Policing Committee has alleged.

Cllr. Willie Fitzharris said it is a difficult area to deal with and new legislation is awaited from the Minister for Justice Frances Fitzgerald.

'We should co-ordinate some kind of strategy to combat this,' said Cllr. Harris, informing members that the sub-committee has invited representatives of An Post and Customs to discuss the issue at its next meeting.
