At the National Assembly Anil Gayan said no deaths related to the consumption of synthetic drugs have been noted until now.
The Minister of Health points out that there are too much hype about it. There has been no confirmed case that a person died by consuming the synthetic drug. “Nous travaillons sur une base de preuves,” he said.
There was uproar in the chamber to the point that the deputy speaker Adrien Duval was led to say that “c’est bien un débat passionné mais il faut qu’il y ait un peu de respect.”
He added that each party shall be entitled to intervene to the Chamber.
