Drug abuse cannot be allowed to win

The recent description in some news papers of Edinburgh as “Drug capital” citing figures that show a drug dealer caught every 5 hours is both misleading and inaccurate. The recent crack-down on dealers is a direct consequence of a much more efficient system of agencies sharing information that Labour instigated. Following years of frustration at misguided “data protection” issues from many agencies, Labour created a model that dealt with those barriers and allows for detailed exchange of intelligence. The recent spate of raids is the result. Drugs remain a scourge. We did something about it but still more needs to be done
