Druglink cover July August 2014

In this edition of Druglink, DrugScope Chief Executive Marcus Roberts considers the complex interplay between crime, heroin and poverty – and what it might look like in the future (The futures market, p6). This article is available as a free download. Max Daly talks to three parents whose children died after taking drugs and discovers how grief has driven them to take action (Driven by loss, p7) and Geoff Monaghan, former detective sergeant, asks why Police and Crime Commissioners are not hitting the mark (Crime-Busters or PCC Plods?, p10). Joseph Kean and Jim McVeigh from the Centre for Public Health at Liverpool John Moores University take a look at how some services are responding to the needs of image and performance enhancing drugs (NICE of you to notice, p14) and Peggy Whitfield talks to event organisers and partygoers about the return of illegal raves to the UK (TEN…and you’re out, p18). And with the legal cannabis economy in North America suddenly booming, David Ader considers what the future holds for investors, vendors and customers (Joint ventures, p20).
