Until much tougher sentences are made it won’t be long before they’re back on the street again. It’ll be interesting what punishment is handed to them.

Unfortunately not. Business for those praying on our vulnerable and gullable young appears to be as strong as ever.
Walking through Freshwater, I can still smell the pungent weed everywhere.
Perhaps the Micra was selected as an innocent looker..
It only takes one report from a conscience pricked person to bring in another supplier.
So please do the right thing – friends, relatives, neighbours…

Absolutely. To everyone out there on the island, if you know drug dealers and they are actively selling this rubbish, inform the police. You can dial 101 and you don’t have to give your name if you don’t want to. Just don’t let these dirty drug dealers get away with selling this sh*t. Well done to island Police, good stop.

All you drug pushers out there, your time is up, you WILL get caught. Many people on the island will know who you are and what you’re selling……. it’s just matter of time. Dirty filthy drugs ruin lives.

A drop in the ocean. All those of you thinking this will help or is another nail in the coffin are deluded. I lived on the island 35 years ago in my early 20s and weed was everywhere. Nothing has changed. The punishment is not severe enough so there is no disincentive to largely stupid people who squandered their education and now have no other source of income. I have a family of dealers on my street where I live now. Back in the summer there was a drugs bust they took away loads of staff and the woman involved… Read more »
