Cannabis legalisation: Where do the parties stand?


Type: News
Region: Republic of Ireland
Northern Ireland

ââ,¬ËoMingââ,¬â"¢ Flanagan is currently dotting the iââ,¬â"¢s and crossing the tââ,¬â"¢s on a bill that will propose the legalisation of cannabis in Ireland. Flanaganââ,¬â"¢s bill, which is due to be launched in the coming days, is expected to include provisions for people to both purchase the drug and grow cannabis plants themselves. Opponents to the legalisation have warned that it could result in more people using the drug, saying it can also be a gateway substance and may increase the use of other more harmful drugs. However others in favour of it have said that regulating could lower the risks of people using contaminated drugs, reduce crime and yield a high tax revenue.
