Mayor backs drive to cut gas abuse.
Byline: MIRROR REPORTER
DUBLIN'S Lord Mayor yesterday backed a campaign raising awareness of the deadly risks of inhaling butane gas.
The Ana Liffey Drug Project has reported an increase in inhalation cases and has warned against the risks.
Spokesman Tony Duffin said: "It's cheap and accessible so unfortunately inhaling butane has become part of some people's daily drug use."
Mayor Criona Ni Dhalaigh added: "It is disturbing to hear that amongst the range of drugs being misused, people are inhaling butane to get a cheap high.
"I think this is not something many people would be aware of and I commend the Inhaling Butane Information Campaign which aims to raise awareness of the often deadly risks."
