Last week Gardai discovered more than €1 million worth of ketamine in Dublin and Kildare in the largest seizure of this substance in Irish history.

Seizures of this magnitude are rare when it comes to ketamine and gardaí see this haul as an indication of increased demand for the drug, with the expectation that further seizures of it will follow in the coming months.

Speaking to TheJournal.ie this week, Detective Garda Sergeant Brian Rogers of the Drugs and Organised Crime Bureau gave us an insight into ketamine use in Ireland, which he says has been on the rise in the last two years.
