RESEARCH needs to be carried out into drug use in Jersey following ‘dramatic’ changes to patterns and trends in the past decade, according to the head of the Alcohol and Drug Service.
Michael Gafoor, director of the service, said there had been a major shift in the drugs being used, particularly after the emergence of so-called ‘legal highs’.
A proposal had now been submitted for funding from the Drug Trafficking Seizure Fund, money collected from criminals, to pay for the research, which has not been updated since 2001.
