Police host talk on drugs in Merrimack
Presented by Chief William Quigley of the Brookline Police Department, a small group of attendees learned the differences between depressants, stimulants, hallucinogens and narcotics while also learning the side effects and indicators for each drug.
“They get them from friends, acquaintances and people on the street,” he said.
Smoked drugs such as marijuana are a popular choice among young people because the effects are quick, explained Quigley.
“People who use drugs are not bad people — they are human beings,” said Quigley. “They have an illness, a sickness, and they need help.”
“We try to spread the news that drugs are a bad thing,” he said, urging those in attendance to teach the “3 R’s” philosophy — respect yourself, respect others and responsibility for your actions.
Indicators for narcotic analgesics such as heroin include track marks, sleepiness, slow reflexes, facial itches, constricted pupils, euphoria and raspy speech.
To make matters worse, heroin is easily addictive and incredibly cheap at $5 or $8 a package for two doses, added Quigley.
