Legal Highs in our Community

March 27, 2014 at 10:42 AM

Last Friday (21 March) a community meeting was held to raise awareness of the impact of legal highs in our community. Facilitated by Waitakere Community Law in conjunction with Community Waitakere, the meeting attracted a significant number of people from our community who voiced their concerns about the impact of legal highs particularly on young people.

This website provides a good overview of the Pschoactive Substances Act 2013 for those who are interested in what the legislation covers.
