Legal highs - River CC discussion on Wednesday night

On Wednesday night there was more discussion on the situation of the sale of legal highs in Nairn. There was strong  representation from a concerned mother who was present at the meeting. It seems that the authorities are busy behind the scenes looking for any possible means that could hinder the sale of such substances. Members of River Community Council again voiced their fears on the matter.

Liz told the Gurn that she had been speaking to Fergus Ewing MSP, she said: "Fergus has already made representation to Westminster to try to get drugs classification based on the effect the drug can have on people (hallucinogenic, mind altering, long term affects etc) rather than the chemical make up of the substance. He is looking further into the issue and shall be following up with Rosanna Cunningham."
