Gardaí Arrest Draconian Misuse Of Drugs Acts In Latest ‘E-Tablet’ Death


GARDAÍ investigating the latest tragedy which saw another life taken due to a potentially lethal batch of ‘e-tablets’, have arrested the draconian misuse of drugs acts 1977, 1984 and embarrassingly 2015, which they claim allowed the unregulated substances to circulate.

Tests found the killer pills contained amphetamines, methamphetamine and opium — and not the desired methylenedioxy-methamphetamine (MDMA) the young woman was seeking.

“We arrested the suspects shortly after 10am this morning,” a Garda spokesman said today. “The three acts, which consecutively banned the use of an array of chemical formulas, will be held for questioning for the next 48 hours as it was their hands that forced the sale and supply of an uncontrolled substances.”

The Misuse of Drugs acts, who have failed time-and-time-again to research any of the chemicals involved, are now at the centre of thousands of drug related deaths across the country since the late 1970s.

The Gardaí have not ruled out charging them with aiding and abetting criminal gangs who have made countless millions from exploiting the status quo.

“Our investigation has found the acts to have been responsible for over 500 drug deaths in the last year alone,” he added, referencing a report from the analysis by the Health Research Board (HRB). “That’s almost ten people a week in Ireland”.

When asked why so many deaths have gone virtually uncovered by the mainstream media, he replied: “I suppose it’s down to where these people were from and their social status. No one wants to hear about a heroin addict from Waterford overdosing”.

Some 5,289 people have died from overdoses and drug-related causes in the ten years since records began in 2004 to the end of 2014.

However, the Misuse of Drugs Acts are not expected to be charged with any wrongdoing, nor the government ministers who oversee them.
