Police complain of nausea caused by drugs haul

Seized marijuana said to be affecting “officers and detainees” after long storage process

The SUP police union made an official complaint on Friday, reporting that officers stationed at the Benidorm police headquarters are suffering ill effects due to 600 confiscated marijuana plants that are currently being stored there.

Police sources have told the Efe news agency that the plants have been in a basement garage at the police station since May 3, the day that they were seized during a raid on a property in Calpe, Valencia.

In the official complaint, the SUP police union wrote that both officers and detainees "were suffering the consequences of these narcotic substances," which were causing "headaches, nausea and alterations of their mental equilibrium."

Spain's slow courts often means that drugs are stored for long periods of time in police premises, something that has led to a number of high-profile robberies of seized narcotics in recent years.
