Get rid of drugs from Opotiki town is the purpose of a march this afternoon for the community one group, one mind set to clear Opotiki.

The synthetic and psychotic drugs are currently affecting our children every where in the Bay of Plenty and across Aotearoa. An advocate against drugs is Luke Rolleston from Whakaatu Whanaunga Trust in Opotiki.

He wants children to have a happy and healthy environment. He said while shops in Opotiki aren’t selling k2 drugs, they selling of them are underground which he said was expected after the law change.
