Detective Chief Inspector Roger Fortey, Gwent Police's lead on drugs and legal highs, insists police forces here are taking a "hard-line proactive approach" to tackling the problems posed by legal highs.
He said it was based on targeting businesses selling legal highs, with products seized from two shops, and action taken against "sophisticated" online businesses selling legal highs - but also educating young people who might be attracted to using the substances.
Extended periods sitting behind a desk are linked to an increased risk of illnesses such as type 2 diabetes and heart disease.
Even with factors such as age, smoking and amount of exercise taken out, higher health risks still exist for those who sit for long spells at work, according to research.
Around half of the UK working population have sedentary occupations - most notably office-based jobs, where more than 75% of the working day is spent sitting.
Today, health specialists from across Wales will gather in Cardiff on a seminar relating to the risks of sedentary behaviour at work and discuss ways in which to reduce it.
Sitting at work is the main source of sedentary behaviour for many working age adults...We'll also be encouraging delegates to take regular breaks in their sitting time throughout the seminar, in order to ensure we are all practising what we preach.
The number of cases logged by Wales' four police forces with the term 'legal high' increased by almost 2,000 per cent in the last two years.

An ITV News investigation has uncovered the growing problem of so-called legal highs in Wales.
Figures from all four Welsh police forces show the number of incidents logged with the words 'legal high' increase from just 11 in the year to 2012, to 207 this year.
Legal highs are also known as new psychoactive substances. They contain one or more chemical substances, designed to mimic the stimulant effects of illegal drugs.
Across the UK, around one death every week involves legal highs.
The term 'legal highs' suggests they are safe, but users know little about the substances contained within them, which can often vary.
The Welsh Assembly's Health and Social Care Committee is currently holding an inquiry into their harms, the level of education surrounding them, and whether changes to the law could help tackle the problems.
UK Government Crime Prevention Minister Norman Baker said that more than 350 substances have been banned since 2010, and he will announce his response to a review into policies on legal highs shortly.

Its believed Cardiff City owner Vincent Tan will lead the search for the man to replace Solskjaer.
In January Cardiff Chairman Mehmet Dalman was tasked with finding a successor to Malky Mackay and spent weeks trying to persuade Solskjaer, then manager at Norwegian Side Molde FK, to take over at the City Stadium.
When Ole was revealed to the media Dalman made it clear that Cardiff only had one man in mind for the job.
