Police went with a warrant under the 1971 Misuse of drugs Act last Friday. The flat has now been boarded up by Tower Hamlets council.
Pol Sgt Jim Jones said: “This is our commitment to combat drugs in the East End.
“We have been taking action to deal with the issues affecting the Shadwell neighbourhood and are here to listen to families’ concerns about crime and anti social behaviour.”
The property has been causing serious nuisance to families for six months, police said.
