An Otago and Southland health official has discovered that mental-health wards are easily being influenced with the increased use of synthetic cannabis over time, as per a recent report.
The nursing director, Heather Casey, says that even a rise in the number of assaults being faced by mental healthcare workers is partly, if not wholly, being seen in the wake of the rising synthetic cannabis use.
It has been found that alcohol or illicit drug was also kneeling down in front of synthetic cannabis. Since, the same has somehow caused mental healthcare staff at Southern District Health Board (SDHB) to face a 37% increase in assaults in merely seven months.
Though, a temporary ban on the same has been introduced a year before. The report finds that healthcarers are not letting the same succeed. Also, inpatients on leave were receiving synthetic cannabis before they return to their wards.
It is being said that none amongst one and all is realizing that the use is even worse than cannabis-use, the original substance.
A decision has now been taken to introduce a permanent law change by late this year. As per the findings, manufacturers would be needed to provide toxicology data as well as human clinical trial results to a new regulatory body so that it confirms if a drug is safe.
