Drug paraphernalia turns up at corner store

A new item being sold next to candy and chocolates in convenience stores in White Rock, B.C., has some parents concerned.

Pipes often used to smoke drugs are showing up in shops along the beach in White Rock, a city about 45 kilometres from Vancouver.

Kerry Jackson, whose son took his own life after becoming addicted to crystal meth, says they have to go.

“Having our children normalized by the paraphernalia that we use to smoke it is not good for us, or good for them,” Jackson told CTV Vancouver.

Jackson insists the pipes need to be taken off the shelves because they are just too tempting for children.
