Dear Parents and Carers,
We want to make you aware that there is an increase in the use of the recreational drug Nitrous Oxide amongst young people in Harrogate as well as parts of Leeds. You may have seen the empty metal canisters on the Stray as the link to North Yorkshire Police’s Facebook page below illustrates.
Nitrous Oxide is the second most common drug used amongst 16 – 24 year olds and can have fatal consequences. Please see the link below to the ‘Talk to Frank’ website for more information about the drug and the risks associated with it.
