Teenager Bought Drug In Bulk 'Because It Was Cheaper'

Wednesday August 14 2013

We Are Barnsley We Are Barnsley

A TEENAGER with a box of MCAT under his bed estimated to be worth between £690 and £1,035 said he bought the drug in bulk 'because it was cheaper'.

Police searched the 17-year-old's Birdwell home after he was stopped because he had white powder around his nose and three bags of the drug on him, Barnsley Youth Court was told.

John Kavanagh, prosecuting, said: "The boy bought the drug in bulk because it was cheaper."

Philip Howard, defending, said the MCAT found in the boy's bedroom was not pure. He urged the court to treat the police's estimated street value with care.

He said the boy had taken the drug on and off for two years and gave £90 to a friend who knew someone who could get it in bulk.

The teenager, who admitted possession of drugs, had his case adjourned until August 23 for a pre-sentence report and was granted unconditional bail.

Yes should be punished as an adult too many young & old taking Mkat, ketamine & other drugs mixed with all sorts for a quick fix as its cheaper than alcohol we need to get tougher like other countries tougher sentences & then see if they do it! Stupidity & not just youngsters either!!!

If it was for personal use, although I don't condone it, end of day it was his choice. If he was selling it however that's when the laws are broken and he should be dealt with harsher.

every one has different opinions. I personally think the teenager had a bulk and intended to supply. how do kids of a young age get enough money to buy drugs? when I was young I got 50p a day for some sweets from shop, not £20 a day for MCAT. disgusting

This debate is so entertaining. I visit WAB daily to see the terrible spelling and grammar. Has anybody mentioned potholes yet?

I think you only come on here like a lot of people to pull peoples spelling etc.
But really you should be going back to skool .
Take the piss out of other people when you learn how to spell yourself.
Marajuana is not the correct way to spell
MARIJUANA. if you cant write in a foreign
language just call it mary jane.
Its english version.
And stop taking the piss out of others

See how these comments went from talking about the lad with the Mcat to quite literally slagging each other off.Can't beat Barnsley folk for having a quick dig(no pun intended) at each other.Where do these teenagers get money like that from to buy in bulk??

Reply Posted by Sharon on Tuesday August 20 2013 at 09:53
Where do they get the money? You may be surprised to hear that some drug users actually work to pay for their habit. Paper rounds, baby sitting jobs and then of course there's the Bank of Mum and Dad. Have you any idea the average weekly pocket money kids get now? It's not ten bob. I mean look at what teen stuff costs from games to magazines etc. The kids using just forgo other stuff you'd expect a teen to buy (like the latest whatever) or they steal........

This drug is an epidemic in barnsley!! My son is addicted to the stuff and believe me it's not only destroying his mind,body and soul it's also destroying our family! This drug does not show up in any drug test as they haven't even bothered to develop a test for it so how the hell can the drug services,police etc deal with the problem when it's not even detectable? I love my son with all my heart and would give my life if it ment saving his but that doesn't mean I have to like him or his behaviour! Please remember when your all calling them from a pug to a dog that these are still people and are someone's son/daughter. My son was never dragged up he was fetched up knowing right from wrong and just had events happen in his life that he couldn't cope with at a young age and turned to drugs as an escape,and before you all jump alover me saying it was his choice etc,yes your right it is/was and I'm not excusing his behaviour at all. This is a reason for his addiction NOT an excuse and I hope to god all you in your glass house never have the displeasure of any of your family members being affected by drug addiction as you never know whats around the corner. Drug addiction is classless just remember that
