Derry man jailed for NOT snorting cocaine…

YOU might have thought ‘attempted possession’ would mean trying to buy an illegal drug, but apparently it can also mean sniffing baking soda or some other white powder believing it’s the real thing. Isn’t that a thought crime? Still, this guy’s’ one-month sentence will probably run concurrent with his two assault convictions, so I’ll not get too worked up about this latest bizarre episode from the NI legal system. Hope he appeals the conviction anyway; that could be some crack – which is maybe what the judge was thinking…!
