Councillor Georgia Cruickshank has expressed her deep anger at news that another shop in the city is selling “legal highs”.
“I am extremely angry that another shop is selling these products. "
Georgia , who is at the forefront of the Dundee Campaign Against Legal Highs continued :
“There needs to be more testing of these substances.
“Every time one of them becomes illegal, the ingredients changed slightly and then the products go back on the market. "
She added :
“If you would like to know more about Dundee Campaign Against Legal Highs or join us on a demo, please get in touch.”

The Facebook page of the Dundee Campaign Against Legal Highs carries the following message :
“This is a very important campaign.
“We want to send a clear message to those who sell and to those who allow NPS (New Psychoactive Substances) –so- called legal highs - to be sold in our local shops, to the detriment of our communities and vulnerable young people.
"This is indefensible and morally wrong to sell these dangerous substances under the guise of "plant food, not for human consumption, bath salts" knowing full well what their intended use is.
"Legal highs are manufactured to mimic the effects of illegal drugs.
"The term legal does not imply safe, quite the contrary, they are highly dangerous, untested and very unsafe.
Lives have been lost and long term damage has been caused to health through the use of NPS. “
