18 January, 2012 - by Jennifer McCann

Sinn Féin MLA for West Belfast has welcomed the seizure of up to £25,000 of cannabis in the Areema area in what appears to be a cannabis factory.

Speaking today Ms McCann said:

“I welcome the seizure ofthese drugs and the closing down of what appears to be a cannabis factory.

"Cannabis is the first drug of choice especially amongst young people and its use is usually the first step by many to harder more harmful drugs and has been proven to cause mental health problems.

“It has serious side affects including dependancy, depression and paranoia for those who use it with serious affects both on personal life on the community.

“To see this amount taken off the streets is good news. As a community we must all ensure we stand against those who would supply drugs, especially to our young people.”
