Ireland Is Ready To Legalize Cannabis

ireland marijuanaIt looks like marijuana legalization efforts are ramping up in Ireland. Roscommon TD Luke Ming Flanagan recently published his ‘Cannabis Regulation Bill 2013.’ According to a media outlet in Ireland, legalization would generate somewhere around 300 million Euro. Admittedly, I’m not as familiar with Ireland public policy and economics as I am with American policy and economics, but 300 million Euro sounds like more than enough reason to end cannabis prohibition.

According to the Irish Times, the bill would (full bill can be found at the previous link):

– regulate cannabis for recreational and medical use

– allow for home cultivation up to a maximum of six cannabis plant

– allow for the personal possession of up to one ounce of cannabis

– allow for the setting up of “Cannabis Social Clubs” which would allow up to 50 club members to cultivate up to 300 plants for not-for-profit use

– set up a “cannabis regulation authority” to regulate the cultivation, sale, labelling, advertising and marketing of cannabis

– see tax revenue from cannabis fund drug addiction services, medical research and juvenile education courses on drugs.

– include a requirement that the Minister for Justice and Minister for Agriculture to examine the feasibility of the safe regulation and controlled use of cannabis.

To our readers in Ireland – we are rooting for you here on the West Coast of America! A reader sent me a Facebook message asking if I could share the following petition from Ireland. The language is below, click here to sign it:

    IF YOU READ THIS BLOG ABOVE,,YOU MAY FEEL AS I DO. IRELAND SHOULD BE AN EXAMPLE TO THE U.S., AS TO HOW EASY IT IS TO COME TOGETHER ON AN ISSUE THAT WILL MOST DEFINITELY BENEFIT THEIR COUNTRY AND THEIR ECONOMY ! MARIJUANA AND HEMP, SHOULD BE LEGAL IN ALL STATES,,REGULATED AND TAXED AS IN IRELAND. OUR ECONOMY IS AT IT’S LOWEST, PEOPLE ARE CONFUSED AND THIS COULD BE FIXED, SO EASILY.
