Wrexham's drug problem - address the causes not the symptoms

A private meeting for the town's traders was held in the Guildhall last night. The aim of the meeting was to discuss the ongoing problem of drug and alcohol misuse in the town centre and associated anti-social behaviour.

One of the people present have asked that this post is removed. 

I have removed all reference to what was discussed at the meeting but will end by retaining what I said in conclusion to my original article:

There are solutions to the drug problem blighting Wrexham as a whole. They're not easy and would take a united front involving politicians, police and all other agencies.

What's clear is that treating it with a sticking plaster rather than addressing the underlying problems will not work - the PSPO is just moving the problem on.
