A former drug addict whose name has been withheld makes shocking revelations about how saturated Ashaiman is with drugs and how the police can do little or nothing about the situation.
According to him, the toughest ghetto for drug dealers can be found right behind the Ashaiman police station but the police do not dare arrest anyone.
“The toughest place is behind the police station, people smoke right behind the police station, but they can’t enter there,” he revealed.
“The ‘bases’ where weed is sold are more than fifty, some even sell in their rooms. They are also sold in drinking spots, but the well-known place in Ashaiman is called ‘18’. ‘18’ is also known for theft and the culprits usually go free because they will either escape by the time you bring the police or they argue their word against yours,” he added.
Tablets like the very famous ‘tramadol’ is not left out as they are also sold in the dark in different forms.
“In some drinking spots, the weed is boiled with water and then mixed with Don Simon. Tramol is then diluted in this mixture and sold as ‘shocker’,” he said.
This young man also spoke about how some people can deliberately cause harm to others through weed.
“When someone wraps weed for you, you need to unwrap it to check the content. If someone wants to harm you, he can mix the weed with salt or the seed of pepper and once you light it and smoke, you can go mad instantly,” he noted.
“Market women in Ashaiman also sell weed. Someone could be selling tomatoes or beef and also be selling weed,” he disclosed all these at the studios of Happy FM with Pastor Nyansa Boakwa on the ‘NsemPii’ show.
Hope this will awaken the police to exhibit their superiority and take action against these addicts and possibly get some help for them.
