Drugs are now legal in Ireland (for 48 hours) due to legal loophole
A ruling in the Court of Appeal on the Misuse of Drugs Act 1977 this morning effectively means that the possession of certain drugs, which had been illegal, is currently legal.

The court ruling found that the 1977 Act was being added to via ministerial order without recourse to the Oireachtas, in violation of article 15 of the Constitution.
Ministerial orders had been used nine times since the Actís inception to outlaw the possession of drugs like ecstasy, ketamine, magic mushrooms, benzos and other drugs.

The ruling means that TDs must pass emergency legislation tonight in order to make these drugs illegal again. The bill will then go to the Seanad tomorrow.
The new bill includes a provision that says it can only take effect on the day after itís signed into law, meaning that the law will not come into force until 12am on Thursday.

Yay for certain drugs! My favorite are weed, opiates, MDMA, tobacco, and alcohol! In that order too! Also coffee and herbal teas! afro
