Death of a Young Man Linked to Drugs Misuse 0

On Thursday, twenty one year old Connor Cochrane was found dead in the Kenlis Street area. The deceased man was said to come from an affluent family in both areas of Banbridge and Dromore. In relation to the death incident, two men, a forty-something year old and a twenty-something year old, were arrested. Both arrested men were brought to the hospital for treatment while one of them was still under medication until yesterday.

Moreover, council chairman Marrie Hamilton left a statement regarding the incident on the man’s death. She pointed out that if the man’s death is confirmed to be caused by the use of illegal drugs, the incident will then be the sixth on the list of drug related tragedies in the span of one year.

After an investigation into Connor Cochrane’s death, the coroner has revealed that the twenty one year old man’s death was caused by the use of “cocktail of illegal substances.” More to that point, council chairman Hamilton has mentioned that there is “cause for concern” on the drug related problems in the district and she believes that the recurring incidents call for an action to be done in terms of educating the people, most especially the young ones. The youth needs a direction to the situation wherein they can be given assistance they need on account of the number of drug related deaths that occurred before time.

The SDLP councilor added that the local PSNI is doing their job to come to grips with it. Although it is not an easy task to track down the one who pushes these substances, but the problem has becoming more serious and blatant. That’s why something really has to be done.

What’s more, Stephen Moutray, the Upper Bann DUP MLA, characterized the tragedies as a very worrying turn of events because any young person’s death would rock a community to the core with no exception to Connor Cochrane’s case. Banbridge has been ruined by the five recent drug related deaths in the community. Hence, PSNI and other significant authorities have to tackle this widespread of drugs misuse.

Drugs are the problem, they are not the solution

There has been an alarming rise in the prescription of Psychotropic drugs for children. It is a matter of concern and people are trying to propose ideas as to deal with this problem. Instead of getting to the root cause of drugs, society is trying to look for quick fixes that are unnatural because of the monetary factor. The motivation behind the drug industry, pharmaceutical research as well as medicine is money.
It is very unfortunate for children to not get a chance to live a life where they can experience every aspect. Many of them die through degenerative disorders and drugs, rather than solving their problems, ruin them because of professionals who prescribe psychotropic drugs for young children, leading to fatal consequences. Drugs treat symptoms, not the cause. It is just like covering the stains of the wall without really repairing the leak that lies under.
