A sixth-former at Wendeles Secondary School, was arrested yesterday for selling marijuana to junior pupils. He blamed his friends for getting him hooked on it. "First time I had it was at a friend's house on a Saturday evening. It had been planned beforehand to get me stoned (unable to behave normally), which I was rather angry at first. But in the end I was excited about taking it. At first it was just like smoking a cigarette but getting a pleasant effect as well. I kept laughing. I only smoked it when I was offered it at big parties. Then I met somebody who said they could get the stuff real easy. My friends started coming to me for it. Then this person started getting heavy. He wanted me to start sniffing other hings, but I refused. I know what other drugs do to people. No way would I inject anything. I think that's disgusting."
Police inspector James said, "That's the way these kids often get hooked. The 'hard' drug pushers start them on something like marijuana and then say, "Why don't you just sniff a bit of this" or "Just put a bit of this in your drink," and before they know it, they're hooked on heroin, cocaine or amphetamines. It only takes two weeks of heroin, two or three times a week, to be addicted."
