A Christchurch mother wants police to crack down on dealers getting away free from sons and daughters dying from synthetic cannabis.

Jenny lost her son who was a mental health inpatient - but hasn't heard back from the police after giving a text message from his drug dealer.

She told Chris Lynch the drug dealer wanted his $50 back.

“Even the day after my son died, the person who he brought it from wanted proof from my daughter that my son Sean was dead.”
