Hyannis Civic Association Wants To Rid Village of Synthetic Drug ‘Spice’

Main Street, Hyannis

Main Street, Hyannis

HYANNIS – Greater Hyannis Civic Association President William Cronin told the Barnstable Town Council last week that there is a new threat in Hyannis.

The synthetic drug known as “spice,” which police say is a chemical form of marijuana, is sold legally in mom and pop convenience stores in Hyannis and in other parts of the town, Cronin said.

The association will hold a meeting tonight at 7 p.m. in the second floor conference room at the Steamship Authority building on School Street in Hyannis to inform the public about the issue and to generate ideas to try to get the drug out of local stores.

The meeting is being called Voices of the Village, after a series of meetings in 2011 that were organized to deal with a range of issues from crime to zoning. As a result of those efforts, a number of initiatives were launched including mentoring for youth and new zoning bylaws.

Barnstable Police Chief Paul MacDonald is scheduled to speak at tonight’s meeting.
