Sinn Féin - On Your Side

Boyle welcomes ban on legal highs

26 May, 2016 - by Michaela Boyle

Sinn Féin MLA Michaela Boyle has welcomed the news that from today there will be a blanket ban on so called 'legal highs'.

Ms Boyle said:

“I very much welcome this enforcement. This is something I had put pressure on the health and justice ministers on in the last mandate.

“There is no doubt about the misery ‘legal highs’ have caused across all communities. They have led to deaths and caused untold harm to so many, particularly young people.

“Sinn Féin has consistently called for an all-Ireland approach to deal with so-called legal highs." CRÍOCH/ENDS
