Irish head shops are not currently breaching any laws.
That’s according to Detective Superindent Michael O’Sullivan, who’s attached to the Garda National Drug Unit.
Around 250 people are attending a conference exploring the “Legal” highs of headshops” in Mullingar today.
The owners of so-called Head Shops are being asked to consider the social and health risks associated with the products they sell.
Head Shops have hit the headlines in recent weeks over the sale of ‘legal’ drugs that mimic the effects of substances like cannabis and ecstasy.
