RCMP warn not to mix drugs/alcohol after Rossland teen gets ill
Police are warning the public that mixing drugs with alcohol could have serious side effects, and to be cautious after a Rossand youth fell ill according to RCMP Sgt Mike Wicentowich.
“On Oct. 23, at 11:03 p.m., Trail and Greater District RCMP received a request to assist a 16-year old Rossland youth who had reportedly consumed too much alcohol and marijuana at medium-sized outdoor bush party, in Rossland,” Wicentowich said.
An officer arrived on scene to find a firefighter and others keeping the distressed youth comfortable and safe.
The youth admitted to mixing alcohol and marijuana and the combined effects proved too much to handle. Thankfully she was okay, and was picked up by a parent who took her home to rest and recover.
The Trail RCMP would like to thank the youth at the party for doing the right thing and contacting the authorities when their friend felt ill, Wicentowich added. Mixing drugs and alcohol could have potentially serious side affects and cause one to fall seriously ill, or worse.
As the Halloween weekend approaches, please be responsible with alcohol and marijuana consumption and arrange for a safe ride home ahead of time.
