Police have expressed worry over the increasing concealment of cocaine, marijuana and other illicit drugs in soups, stews and alcoholic beverages by youth in the Central Region and other parts of the country.
According to the Police Service, this new trend of using the banned substances makes it difficult for their personnel to arrest users.
Speaking at a sensitisation workshop organised by the Police Ladies Association in Cape Coast, the Central Regional Police Commander, DCOP Paul Awini, warned the practice poses a serious security threat to the nation and must be tackled urgently.
“We all know people smoke wee so when you are standing from a distance, you can detect it and effect some arrests. The trend is changing and changing very fast. Now the wee and cocaine are put in alcoholic beverages are consumed in huge quantities by our youth,” he lamented.
