Probably won't concern anyone here but no harm knowing it's not secure. After watching The Great Hack......I'd believe anything is possible. I threw in another there for those not from our shores...

More propaganda to get cannabis legalised. Half the fellows doing hits in Dublin couldn't function without snort.

Teens ‘budgeting for cocaine for their debs’

Teenagers are now budgeting for cocaine along with a dress or suit for their debs, a leading addiction therapist has claimed.

Michael Guerin of addiction charity Cuan Mhuire said that ”kids going to debs are budgeting for cocaine”.

“They’re adding the cost in with the cost of their suits and dress,” said Mr Guerin. “I’ve been told this by five or six concerned parents and older siblings in rehab.

“Cocaine has become as much a part of the debs ritual as the dress, the suit, all the other trappings. It’s a very, very concerning trend.”

A recent report from the Health Research Board revealed a 50% surge in the number of people seeking treatment for cocaine — marking the largest annual increase in what has been a growing trend over the last seven years.

“That report only supports what professionals have been saying for the last two years — that cocaine is taking on a life of its own,” said Mr Guerin.

“We have clients who started using cocaine aged 13. They’re in their early 20s now, 21, 22, telling us that they took cocaine that young and it had a huge psychological effect.

Chris Luke: Cocaine is associated with extreme violence.

“Cocaine plays havoc with your mood. And when it’s in the mix with adolescence, which is already a trying time, it can be disastrous. They become obsessed with cocaine to the cost of everything else, including their education.”

However, despite being linked with violence, the drug is now widely perceived to be “relatively harmless and fashionable”, said Mr Guerin.

“It seems to be relatively easy to access and there’s a status with it,” he said.

“Cocaine is now part of the mix with cannabis and alcohol abuse.

“A big way that youngsters get into it is that someone gives it to them for free at first, they run up a debt and then they become a distributor for them, it’s like an elaborate pyramid scheme, or like a spider web. They’re essentially recruiting children as distributors.”

Chris Luke, adjunct senior lecturer in Public Health at University College Cork, said cocaine can be “synonymous with grotesque violence”.

“Without a shadow of a doubt, if you’re working in an emergency department, the drug that is associated most commonly with extreme violence is cocaine,” said Dr Luke.

Brave gardai tackled a knife-wielding man following a robbery this evening.

Shortly after 6pm today, a man armed with a knife entered a shop in Castletymon Shopping Centre in Tallaght, Dublin and threatened staff.

He then left on foot with a sum of money.

Gardai from the Tallaght district drugs unit were patrolling the area nearby and tackled the man to the ground.

The man threatened gardai with his knife but was subdued.

The cash stolen was also recovered.

A man in his early 40s was arrested and has been detained under Section 4 of the Criminal Justice Act 1984 for questioning at Tallaght Garda Station.
