Police in the North are yet to confirm if a video of teenagers openly smoking marijuana in a contest, which has gone viral on social media is real.
The image includes girls at waterworks forest within the Tamale Metropolis in the Northern Region smoking dried leaves suspected to be Indian hemp and drinking a substance in sachets packs believed to be alchohol.
It is believed that most of these youngsters, who are into drugs, have turned the area into their haven.
But Northern Regional Police Public Relations Officer, ASP Yussif Tanko said while they are not ruling out the possibility of truth, they need to investigate the issue.
He assured: “If it is true that it is from the Tamale forest then it is very disturbing. we will organise investigators into the area and be sure that it is from the Tamale forest. If we find that it is true, then we have to arrest the teenagers involved.”
