Ireland: Legalisation and regulation of drugs like cannabis should be examined by Govt
December 14, 2022 from The Journal
A NEW REPORT by the Oireachtas Justice Committee has recommended that legalisation of certain drugs be examined by the Government as well as allowing some drug cultivation at a “non-profit” level.
The report, published this morning, recommends that the Government examines a regulatory model for certain drugs, including cannabis, as part of measures to reduce the impact of the existing black market for illicit substances.
Speaking this morning, chair of the Joint Committee, Fianna Fáil’s James Lawless said that the report was based on a “three-pronged approach” to Irish drug policy.
