A SPANISH health authority has sparked outrage amongst anti-drug campaigners after handing out advice leaflets to young people on the proper way to snort cocaine.
The campaign, which includes messages such as ‘chop up your line nice and fine,’ and ‘If it is not well chopped, you can damage your nostrils,’ has been condemned as irresponsible and making light of a serious subject.
The controversial project was launched in Bilbaoand involved local health workers handing out plastic advice cards in the shape of credit cards with slogans on them.
However, anti-drug campaigners have slammed the campaign calling it flippant and frivolous.
Health officials said the project was justified in order to ‘minimise the risks of drug use’ and that the card was only given out to ‘selected’ people, not the general public.
Recipients would already have sought help and gone through screening and interviews.
