The man, who wished to remain anonymous, spoke out following the eighth death of a person who smoked synthetic cannabis.

The man said people are not going to stop selling the drug when it becomes illegal.

He said if you're in South Auckland, it won't be hard to find.

"They buy bulk from dairies if you didn't know."

"You'll just have to walk around and ask the first ten people you'll see. I'm not being stink, but you'd say, ask the brown guy and a hundred per cent, within ten guys, you'll find someone," he said.

The anonymous man reported this after finding out that the eighth person had died after being treated for synthetic cannabis.
