Concerned Families Against Drugs (CFAD) take this opportunity to remind drug dealers that their illegal activities are being monitored and they must desist from poisioning young people. For our part, we will continue frustrating their anti-community actions!

For too long, teenagers have been taking these dangerous drugs alongside alcohol. Leaving them open to all sorts of mental and physical problems. Added to this mix is the high levels of teenage pregnancies, STI's and HIV cases in North Belfast also. Does not bode well, after all young people are our future.
CFAD recently identified a female drug dealer who had made thousands of pounds selling and distributing Mephedrone to young people in the Cliftonville, Oldpark and Ardoyne areas. Our Activists spoke with this girl who admitted her secret life and was acutely aware of the damage she had caused her family and community. We also spoke with parents who assured us that their daughter would no longer be involved in the drugs trade.
CFAD are aware of those she supplied these drugs to for distribution and call upon them to contacts us before they are named and shamed to the wider community!

During the past couple of years, many Belfast teenagers have become 'hooked' on 'blue bombers'. Every weekend, large numbers of young people also take large amounts of alcohol with these cheap but dangerous drugs.
Sadly the effects of these particular drugs have a detrimental effect on the mental and physical health of those taking these drugs. As one specialist drug nurse said; 'its turning normal teenagers into manics almost overnight'. The Nurse also told a local Newspaper, 'many are addicted to the pain killers, most in a terrifying physical and mental state'.
For the past few weeks, Concerned Families Against Drugs (CFAD) Activists have been monitoring a number of Drug Dealers in the Greater New Lodge area of North Belfast. As a direct result of our vigilance we were able to seize a large quantity of 'blues' and some cocaine from one of these dealers. We have subsequently identified his drug contacts and from where he sourced his illegal batch.
Due to our ongoing anti-drugs campaign, CFAD are now active throughout working-class Nationalist areas of North Belfast, from Ligoniel to the New Lodge. We intend intensifying our activities over the coming weeks and we again advise dealers to come forward and make themselves accountable to the wider community.
We also ask parents to be aware of how deadly these drugs are and that your children are being regularly targeted by ruthless drug barons.
