Cocaine Use In Cork And Across Ireland Continues To Grow In Line With The Upsurge In The Economy
That's according to Richie Stafford, of Dublin North Regional Drugs Task Force
Earlier this week two men were arrested at Kent Station after allegedly taking cocaine aboard a train bound for Cork - one of those arrested, a man in his 50's is to appear in court on a charge of possession while the second man was released without charge.
A recent report shows problem cocaine-use has increased by nearly 100 percent in Ireland in recent years.
Richie Stafford of the drugs task force says people aren't aware of how much damage it causes.
