Gardaí in Carlow are investigating

A file is being prepared for the Director of Public Prosecutions after Gardaí found a large quantity of synthetic cannabinoid when they carried out a planned search of a house in Barrowvale, Graiguecullen in the last week. 

The search - under warrant - was carried out by the Divisional Drugs Unit which uncovered a large amount of the drug which was individually packed. 

One male was questioned in relation to the find and a file is being prepared for the DPP. 

Synthetic cannabinoids are human-made mind-altering chemicals that are either sprayed on dried, shredded plant material so they can be smoked or sold as liquids to be vaporized and inhaled in e-cigarettes and other devices.
