REPORT: Child Drug Dealer at Music Festival Described As “Horrific” By NSW Premier

Over a dozen teens were busted for allegedly dealing drugs at Goodlife Lost City at Sydney Olympic Park on Saturday. It’s not uncommon for illegal activity like this to go down at music festivals, but what’s shocking is that the ages of the suspects.

A 13-year-old and two 17-year-olds were one of the 16 people arrested at the event. According to a report, the three teens were caught with MDMA capsules and charged with drug supply. Another 16-year-old was charged with drug possession.

NSW Premier Gladys Berejiklian has spoken out to the “horrific” events. She finds it disturbing that children as young as 13 were supposedly caught selling drugs.

“I will ’t think of anything more horrific if the allegations are correct,” Berejiklian said in a announcement .  “It concerns me but especially at that age where kids are vulnerable. ”

Sydney and other parts of Australia have seen a explosion of deaths and drug-related overdoses . While many have called for pill testing and drug education, Berejiklian hopes to locate equilibrium between strict policing at events and the liberty of citizens — something she’s becoming a challenge.
