Martin Condon – Could the decriminalisation of drugs be on the way?

Tánaiste Micheál Martin has signaled support for a decriminalization of drugs, saying he backs calls from his own TDs for a health-led approach.

Two Fianna Fáil TDs, including the chair of the Oireachtas justice committee, said the war on drugs is not working, and there must be a legalization of drugs in this country.

Recreational drug users could be able to access their substance of choice in a “off license”-style outlet, in a bid to control the make-up of the drugs and limit the ability of drug gangs to make vast fortunes from their illegal trade.
