Weed-laced biscuit on sale

Officials have mounted a search for an unnamed vendor said to be distributing cannabis (weed) laced biscuits in the Ashaiman municipality.
The Greater Accra Regional Director of NACOB, Ms Victoria Esinam Assah-Offei, disclosed this at a sensitisation programme on the dangers of drug abuse among young people for schoolchildren within the Kpone-Katamanso District.
According to officials, the biscuits, which were being produced locally, were also being offered for sale to unsuspecting members of the public, including school children.
Ms Assah-Offei said the Greater Accra Regional Office of the Narcotics Control Board (NACOB) is investigating its production and sald. She added that the sale of the biscuits was making illegal drug use among young people.
The sale of the marijuana-laced biscuits, she said, was derailing the board’s efforts in ensuring that incidents of illegal drug use among the youth were reduced.
