New Skunkworks shop causes MP concern

Gordon Henderson MP has raised concerns with Home Secretary, Theresa May, about a new Skunkworks shop that has opened in Sheerness High Street.

Mr Henderson has received a number of emails from constituents who are concerned the shop promotes drug taking.

The UK Skunkworks website states that the shop specialises in the sale of cannabis seeds, as well as a mass of drug taking paraphernalia.

Mr Henderson said,

“I am keen to support local businesses but I do not feel this is the type of shop we should see opening in our high streets.

“I am concerned that the legal sale of cannabis seeds and drug taking paraphernalia sends out entirely the wrong message to our young people.

“l have written to the Home Secretary and asked her to introduce legislation to ban such shops.”
