Cllr Davy Hynes raised the issue of synthetic drugs at the meeting, saying that he had been informed that people are ordering 'head shop drugs' online.
Superintendent John Roche said that there has been an increase in the use of synthetic drugs, adding that they are difficult to control due to the ever-changing nature of them.
'They are changing on a weekly basis and the law is not keeping abreast of the changes,' he said. 'We have to send them to the laboratory and then wait and see if it is legal or not.'
