Drugs task force warns of cuts to budget

The chair of the Mid West Drugs Task force is warning that services will be decimated if there is any further cut in funding.

Mick Lacey says that while heroin use in Limerick has levelled out, there has been an increase in the abuse of prescription medicines such as valium, while gateway drugs such as cannabis continue to be a concern.
The task force provides a co-ordinated and integrated response to illicit drug use in conjunction with a number of community based programmes across the city.
