He said: “Drugs have a detrimental effect on people’s lives and the community as a whole. We will not tolerate such use and we look to the community to support us by providing information on which we will act. Should anyone not feel comfortable contacting the police they can call Crimestoppers freely and anonymously on 0800 555 111.” Dorset Police can be contacted on 101.
