Today’s report in the New Zealand that police filmed an average of 27 visitors to a ‘P’ lab (Methamphetamine) a day just goes to show that New Zealand has a long way to go in the battle against this scourge on society. This goes against some reports that the demand for this drug has diminished.
We must continue the pressure on the supply lines, the ‘cook houses’ and groups who involved in the trade. The cost to society is far too high if allow for the proliferation of ‘P’ and this means increased surveillance on suspected dealers then so be it. To those who something sinister in such moves, then maybe they should familiarize themselves with the damage done to so many, be they family of users or at the extreme end, young children living in ‘cook houses, being exposed to incredibly dangerous fumes and toxins.
If the police relent in their battle, we will see ‘P’ getting out of control again. As bystanders and observers, we owe it to our children and New Zealand as a whole to ‘tell and expose’ the pushers of this substance. Get that off the streets and maybe we will see light at the end of the tunnel.
