Haslingden businessman was selling ketamine to friends

Lancashire Telegraph: The use of ‘designer party drugs’ such as ketamine is increasing, but their effects can be dangerous and far-reaching The use of ‘designer party drugs’ such as ketamine is increasing, but their effects can be dangerous and far-reaching

A businessman earning about £30,000 a year was also running a profit-making ketamine supply operation, doubling the money he paid for it, a court was told.

Burnley Crown Court heard how Joshua O' Connor, 29, of Jubilee Road, Haslingden, was selling to seven friends.

O' Connor, who is self-employed and is said to earn about £600 a week, admitted possessing ketamine with intent to supply and had been committed for sentence by Pennine magistrates. He received 24 weeks in jail, suspended for two years, with 100 hours unpaid work and must pay £300 costs. The defendant had no previous convictions for drugs.
