Always amazes me the focus on illegal drugs whilst not focusing on the biggest problem drug in this country....alcohol....murders, assaults, drunk driving, deaths, destruction of families ah but sure it’s grand because it’s legal and can be bought in abundance on every street corner, the cities biggest tourist attraction is alcohol related yet its all acceptable, i see no difference really between it and the illegal drugs sold on corners in terms of damage done, only difference is the legal status so it’s all ok.

You do realise that's because they're illegal with no quality control.Tolerate them all or use a harm reduction model like Portugal.

What your cure for the effects of a legal drugs sold in pubs and pharmacies which are abused.

Drugs are crap if you don’t have booze with them. Cocaine on its own is just like having a strong cup of coffee. You need a few beers to make it fizz.

You'll just end up with a situation like America with loads of poor (mostly black over there) men serving ridiculous sentences for inconsequential crimes in a privatised prison system.

You suggesting some sort of alcohol prohibition?
Because that didn't work either.

If people want to get drunk or get high, they're going to do that, whatever it takes.

No. Don't know who he is.
Anyway, the proposition will not solve anything.

We need a different approach.
But you know what I'm going to say anyway.

As in Ian Paisley, famous, amongst other things for saying No.

It doesn't sound like the OP has really thought this through. They don't even think a war on drugs exists in Ireland

Oh so anyone working in an off licence should be shot?

Or any publican should be shot? Hmm

You do realise alcohol is a drug. What about caffeine? Or hey actually, cigarettes?

The government have you brainwashed to think, what you think is illegal is whats harming our world, turn us all against eachother while they arse rape us all.

We have a limited amount of prison cells,
i do,nt think people should go to jail for selling hash ,
a soft drug that is legal in many states in america
And is used by many people as a painkiller or as a medication .Prison is for
people who commit violent crimes like armed robbery .
ireland is not america, we cannot afford to build 1000,s of new prison cells .
And we have a problem with homelessness ,
women and children living in hotels for years , is a serious situation and bad for society.
no one is forced to buy cocaine or other party drugs ,
they do it to get high or to feel good.
i,m not saying people should not go to jail for selling drugs,
i think going to jail for life is just an extreme solution.
