Donegal anti-drugs campaigner, PJ Blake is calling on the Minister for Justice and the Garda Commissioner to come clean about the future of the Drugs Unit in Donegal.

His call comes following the news that cannabis thought to be worth in the region of €240,000 was seized in the Garvanach area outside Ballintra, south Donegal on Thursday night.

Mr Blake has also warned that the news that the Cavan-Monaghan garda division’s dedicated drugs unit is being axed with immediate effect could be a sign of things to come in Donegal.
