Legalising drugs: ‘Drug use should be treated as normal adult behaviour’
IRISH YOUTH WORKERS HAVE BANDED TOGETHER TO SEEK AN END TO DRUG PROHIBITION TO REMOVE CRIMINAL RISK FROM USERS
This week more than 100 Irish youth workers and former youth workers have aligned as Youth Workers Against Prohibition Ireland and signed an open letter criticising drug prohibition and arguing for the legal regulation of all drugs in Ireland.
This goes further than the decriminalisation of drug use that has been called for by many campaigners and further than the Cannabis Regulation and Control Bill being put forward by People Before Profit TD Gino Kelly later this year.
