This week a joint campaign between Prison Me? No Way!!, The States of Jersey Police and The Jersey Customs & Immigration Service has been launched in Jersey to educate parents and carers about New Psychoactive Substances (NPS).
A series of free roadshows will be held over the next few weeks at several secondary schools in Jersey, aimed at parents, carers or anyone who is worried about a family member using so called ‘legal highs’.
Just because it SAYS it’s legal, doesn’t mean it is legal OR safe
For many months island officials have been warning islanders that the term 'legal highs' is misleading and a key message organisers want to convey is 'Just because it says it’s legal, doesn’t mean it’s legal or safe'.
Islanders involved in supplying New Psychoactive Substances (NPS) have also been warned of the dangers and that in the eyes of the law, ignorance is no excuse.
The free roadshows start on Monday 15th September at Les Quennevais secondary school. Kids can also enter a poster
competition to win a Total BMX Catalyst bike.
Anyone with information about drug crime in Jersey can call the independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111 or give information anonymously using the
Anonymous Online Form.
