Cannabis has long been the most common drug among young people. But now the synthetic and highly addictive drug kristall has taken over among younger teenagers in several Swedish cities, including Motala – described by the police as the epicenter of the drug.
"It's worrying to see that it goes so far down the ages. The last I heard, it was a 10-year-old who had used the drug," says Mark Henriksson.
The call to parents
He urges parents to seek information about the drug and educate themselves on drug abuse.
– You are welcome to contact Mini Maria here in Motala. Or to the municipality, the police or social services if you have any questions about drugs, that's my call.
