LAST week, three teenagers from the St Jude’s Home for Girls in Belmont were hospitalised after breaking into a room with medical supplies at the facility and ingesting drugs to get high. The girls, aged 13 and 14, attempted to get a “poly-high” by using several different drugs at once, according to Laventille West MP Fitzgerald Hinds.
