Doctors back TD Ming Flanagan's bid for legal cannabis - Medics show support for the new drugs bill

Two doctors have backed TD Luke “Ming” Flanagan’s crusade to legalise cannabis. Dr Garrett McGovern and Dr Cathal O Suiliobhain have said they are both behind Mr Flanagan’s Cannabis Regulation Bill 2013 – due to be published today. The doctors are both board members of the Irish chapter of NORML, the American organisation, which drove last year’s successful referendum campaigns to legalise marijuana in Colorado and Washington states. Dr McGovern, who set up his own alcohol and substance abuse clinic in Dundrum. Co Dublin, told Hotpress: “I’m supporting this Bill because I’d like to see some rational debate.

“My feeling is we haven’t had that yet in this country. There are far more advantages to legalising cannabis than keeping it prohibited. “I’m aware of quite a few Irish GPs, specialists and other healthcare professionals who share my point of view, but are worried about speaking out. It’s really important they give us their input.” Dr O Suiliobhain added: “I’ve been treating drug users for 20 years. Based on my experience, prohibition is causing more harm than good and we should look at reforming it. “Every single drug – even food items – cause problems. There are 400 deaths a year in the US from penicillin, but we don’t ban that. “Proscription doesn’t stop people doing it. With young people, especially, it encourages use.”   >> Read more << on this story.

Ireland  - Information Ireland >> Background: Map of Ireland  Ireland is a country within the continent of Western Europe, occupying five-sixths of the island of Ireland in the North Atlantic Ocean, west of Great Britain. The Irish people are mainly of Celtic origin, with the country's only significant sized minority having descended from the Anglo-Normans. English is the common language, but Irish (Gaelic) is also an official language and is taught in schools. Nationalism was and is a potent populist force in Irish politics. A home rule bill passed in 1914, but its implementation was suspended until war in Europe ended. Believing the mantra: "England's problem is Ireland's opportunity," and tapping into a mood of Gaelic revivalism, Padraic Pearse and James Connolly led the unsuccessful Easter Rising of 1916. Pearse and the other 1916 leaders declared an independent Irish republic, but a lack of popular support doomed the rebellion, which lasted a week and destroyed large portions of Dublin. The decision by the British military government to execute the leaders of the rebellion, coupled with the British Government's threat of conscripting the Irish to fight in the Great War, alienated public opinion and produced massive support for Sinn Fein in the 1918 general election. Under the leadership of Eamon de Valera, the elected Sinn Fein deputies constituted themselves as the first Dail. Tensions only increased: British attempts to smash Sinn Fein ignited the Anglo-Irish War of 1919-1921.

The end of the war brought the Anglo-Irish treaty of 1921, which established the Irish Free State of 26 counties within the British Commonwealth and recognized the partition of the island into Ireland and Northern Ireland, though supposedly as a temporary measure. The six predominantly Protestant counties of northeast Ulster--Northern Ireland--remained a part of the United Kingdom with limited self-government. A significant Irish minority repudiated the treaty settlement because of the continuance of subordinate ties to the British monarch and the partition of the island. This opposition led to further hostilities--a civil war (1922-23), which was won by the pro-treaty forces. In 1932, Eamon de Valera, the political leader of the forces initially opposed to the treaty, became Prime Minister, and a new Irish constitution was enacted in 1937. The last British military bases were soon withdrawn, and the ports were returned to Irish control. Ireland was neutral in World War II. The government formally declared Ireland a republic in 1948; however, it does not normally use the term "Republic of Ireland," which tacitly acknowledges the partition, but refers to the country simply as "Ireland."

Status of Medical Marijuana (Cannabis) in Ireland.

  Info on Ireland and Medical Cannabis 

Ireland does NOT have a MEDICAL MARIJUANA (cannabis) LAW.

Ireland - status Ireland | Under Irish law cannabis is not recognised as having any medical benefits. The most recent Misuse of Drugs (Designation) Order (S.I. No. 69/1998) lists cannabis, cannabis resin, cannabinol and its derivatives as schedule 1 drugs under the Misuse of Drugs Acts of 1977 and 1984. As a consequence manufacture, production, preparation, sale, supply, distribution and possession of cannabis is unlawful for any purpose, except under licence from the Minister for Health.

A licence can be granted under section 13 of the 1977 act for the purpose of research, forensic analysis, or in respect of the use of the drug as an essential intermediate or starting material in an industrial manufacturing process. As recently as 2003 the Irish Medicines Board (under the Control of Clinical Trials Acts 1987 and 1990) granted permission to GW Pharmaceuticals for trials in Irish medical institutions for the use of a cannabis-based medicinal extract in controlling cancer and multiple sclerosis related pain. The licences were granted by the Department of Health to allow trials in a county Cork hospice and Waterford Regional Hospital.

The gardaí (Irish police) have a level of discretion when dealing with recreational cannabis users. To procure a conviction any cannabis seized has to be sent for analysis to the Garda Forensic Science Laboratory. This, along with the time needed to process the arrest, means that individual gardaí may decide not to arrest for small amounts, but the drug will be seized and the name of the individual will be taken. Possession of cannabis is an arrestable offence and in 2003, 53 per cent of all drug seizures and 70 per cent of all drug-related prosecutions were for cannabis. Trafficking or possession with intent to supply are serious offences under Irish law.

On being brought to court, the penalties for possession are outlined as follows: First offence: On summary conviction, to a fine not exceeding €381, or on conviction on indictment, to a fine not exceeding €635. Second offence: On summary conviction, to a fine not exceeding €508, or on conviction on indictment, to a fine not exceeding €1,269. Third or subsequent offence: On summary conviction, to a fine not exceeding €1,269 or, at the discretion of the court, to imprisonment for a term not exceeding twelve months, or to both the fine and the imprisonment, or on conviction on indictment, to a fine of such amount as the court considers appropriate or, at the discretion of the court, to imprisonment for a term not exceeding three years, or to both the fine and the imprisonment. There is no law against possession or sale of cannabis seeds, however, the growing cannabis, even for its medicinal benefits by genuine sufferers is often treated harshly by the courts. ...

Ireland - status Legal and medical status of cannabis From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia | Ireland (Europe) Illegal | Details Illegal (But rarely enforced) ... source - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Legality_of_cannabis_by_country

. . . and . . .

International law

Marijuana is in Schedule IV of the Single Convention on Narcotic Drugs, making it subject to special restrictions. Article 2 provides for the following, in reference to Schedule IV drugs:

    A Party shall, if in its opinion the prevailing conditions in its country render it the most appropriate means of protecting the public health and welfare, prohibit the production, manufacture, export and import of, trade in, possession or use of any such drug except for amounts which may be necessary for medical and scientific research only, including clinical trials therewith to be conducted under or subject to the direct supervision and control of the Party.

This provision, while apparently providing for the limitation of marijuana to research purposes only, also seems to allow some latitude for nations to make their own judgments. The official Commentary on the Single Convention indicates that Parties are expected to make that judgment in good faith.

Ireland - Resource, Org; local Paddy Doyle's battle for Medical Marijuana in Ireland - Help End ... Posted by Gordon Mc Ardle on May 17, 2010 | Mr. Paddy Doyle and the Case for Medical Marijuana in Ireland > Filed Under Marijuana as Medicine | To educate the world about the medical benefits of cannibas. Note: In this paper I hope to show that the current legalban on the medical use of marijuana (cannabis, or Indian hemp) inIreland should be withdrawn. The paper is largely a review of theliterature concerning the medical status of marijuana.

In June 1997, Mr. Paddy Doyle, well known author of his best-sellingautobiography, “The God Squad”, created some controversy in the Irishmedia. This was due to the fact that his consultant had been refusedpermission by the then Minister for Health, Michael Noonan, T.D. toprescribe marijuana to help Mr. Doyle fight the symptoms of adebilitating disease from which he has suffered since childhood. The immediate controversy was, in a way, fairly short-lived, possibly dueto the fact that the media had their attention diverted somewhat, dueto the general election which had just taken place. The issues surrounding the medical use of marijuana, however, areserious ones, and in this paper I intend to look at them in some detail.  Visit - http://hempirl.webs.com/apps/blog/show/3780154-paddy-doyle-s-battle-for-medical-marijuana-in-ireland - for more.

    Ireland - Resource, Contacts; local Belfast | Smoking tolerance level [1= very illegal 5=virtually legal]: 4 --- Legislation: soft drugs are not legal. Ecstasy is rated as an a class drug. Law Enforcement : Poor.. they have too many other things to worry about. There are very few instances of drug busts on tourists and possession of a few grams of hash usually results in a Police caution and confiscation, or at most a small fine. Ecstasy on the other hand is a class A drug, and possession can lead to a jail term (worst case scenario, and the authorities do not want to jail tourists). The police are relatively inactive as they prepare to undergo a major reform as a result of the “Peace process”, and it is rare to see them patrolling the streets Where to Buy Marijuana in Belfast: There is a bar behind Belfast City Hall called Bar Backa, On Monday to Firday between 3pm and 7pm one can buy from a man by the name of tom, tom has a bold head and a long beard, pure white in colour. also – Great Victoria Street to Queen’s University

    Belfast Marijuana Prices: £140 for an ounce… not of a said strain but always a great smoke! and another reorter added: “£25-30 Sterling per quarter ounce (7 grams) Ecstasy is usually available in the late night dance clubs for £5-15 per tablet. ” brands: Moroccan hash This form of hash is known locally as “Slate” or “Soap Bar” webehigh city’s tale: Since the ceasefires of 1994, which ended the extremes of violence, associated with Irelands so-called “troubles”, Belfast City Centre has developed an entertaining and varied nightlife. Most of the action takes place along the Golden Mile, which runs from Great Victoria Street to Queen’s University. Although the area known as the Cathedral Quarter is rapidly developing as an entertainment and leisure zone with new bars opening weekly and the development of a small but vibrant gay scene.

    Drink is the drug of choice for most people in Belfast and there are numerous bars throughout the city centre catering for all tastes. The older bars in the city have a much better atmosphere and more authentic customers than the newer ones. Watch out for traditional music “sessions” which take place in various pubs on different nights of the week. The “session” is an informal get together of musicians most of whom are unpaid except for a few pints during the course of the evening. The best pubs for sessions are Maddens (Friday and Saturday), The John Hewitt (Wednesday and Sunday), and the Rotterdam (Monday and Tuesday). Sessions are usually advertised in the pubs and the musicians will keep people informed on where the next one is to be. Anyone who plays music is welcome to join in the session, visiting musicians take note. There are very few instances of drug busts on tourists and possession of a few grams of hash usually results in a Police caution and confiscation, or at most a small fine. Ecstasy on the other hand is a class A drug, and possession can lead to a jail term (worst case scenario, and the authorities do not want to jail tourists). The police are relatively inactive as they prepare to undergo a major reform as a result of the “Peace process”, and it is rare to see them patrolling the streets. webehigh suggest that you go and check Great Victoria Street to Queen’s University >> Learn more >>

    Ireland - Resource, Contacts; local Dublin | Smoking tolerance level [1= very illegal 5=virtually legal]: 3.5 --- Legislation: The cannabis legislation in Ireland has been changed in 2006. Cannabis is the only drug seperated from the drug laws in Ireland. Every other drug is under Irish law apart of a drug schedule e.g Heroin, Crack, Cocaine etc is Schedule 1 and so on. Cannabis has a three strike system get caught once a caution twice second caution third court appearance. Law Enforcement: The Gardai in Ireland are like any other police force in the world it can vary. One Garda might take you in another mighten but the new laws protect the Irish cannabis smokers. Where to buy Marijuana in Dublin: Marijuana in Ireland is very easy to get but you need to know people in the loop! Street selling is almost a dead art. The only places really to find marijuana stepping into Dublin knowing no one is Temple Bar and Moore Street. Temple Bar is the night club district and hang around outside clubs and you will find people selling something but mainly on busy friday and saturdays! Moore Street has alot of African shops and some people sell grass. Id say its virtually impossible to find proper bud on the street unless your really lucky. The only other way is keep your eyes and nose open in smoking areas in pubs and see if you can get to any parties.

    Dublin Marijuana Prices: Soap Bar 25euro-Quarter 50euro-Half 90euro-Ounce Pollen 50euro-Quarter 180euro-ounce Grass 50 euro bags (roughly 5grams of grass) Weed (sinsemilla, all strains) 50euro-3.5grams 100euro-7grams 250-350euro-28grams (ounce) Hash Oil 40euro-Wrap Brands: Soap Bar populates most of the market and is easiest to come across Pollen not rare but not common either can be gotten from the right people Grass more street buying but can be common when bud runs out Weed has its good spells but can disappear quickly but over the last year has been very consistent just expensive Hash Oil rare but i have come across it quite a bit maybe annually

    webehigh city’s tale: Dublin is the town that Guinness built. This capital city of over 1 million inhabitants on the Republic of Ireland’s eastern coast is commonly associated with Guinness, one of the world’s most famous beers. An estimated 10 million glasses a day of Guinness stout, which boasts a black body and creamy tan head, pour out of taps in 150 countries. Established in 1759, Guinness’s home at St. James Gate in Dublin was at one time the largest brewery in the world and is still one of the city’s most famed tourist attractions. Thousands visit the brewery each year for a tour, followed by samples in the on-site pub. Whiskey is also well represented in old Eire. “During my time in Dublin I found the Dubliners more interested in getting pissed [drunk] than getting high,” said Stuart Campbell, a Scotsman from Glasgow who visits Dublin a few times a year. But, he insisted, that does not mean recreational drugs such as Marijuana and Hash are unavailable. You only have to know where to look, he said, suggesting the Temple bar area as a likely spot for club drugs such as Ecstasy.

    Paul, a Dublin resident who lives in the bustling area near Trinity College, said Hash and other soft drugs are “freely available in Dublin, but you have to know whom to ask for it.” “It’s not a good idea just to ask random people in the street,” he said. “The police, Garda, in the Republic prosecute all cases of possession. So does the Royal Ulster Constabulary [the police service of Northern Ireland],” he said. “So visitors are advised that this is a difference in attitudes between the police here and in places like Holland.” Police statistics show that in 1998 the Garda National Drugs Unit confiscated 44,508 grams of Marijuana, 690 Cannabis plants, 798 tabs of L.S.D, 604,827 hits of Ecstasy MDMA, 4,419 tabs of Ephedrine, and 333,167 grams of Cocaine.

Ireland - Resource, Org; local Toke of the Town > Irish Doctor: Smoking Marijuana Leads To Beards - By Steve Elliott ~alapoet~ in Global, News - Monday, January 9, 2012 | From time to time, the drug warriors come up with a real gem of a reason why we should all come to our senses and just stop it, already, with this "using cannabis" nonsense. I mean, come ON. Despite whatever perceived benefits, medical or otherwise, is it worth the huge risks? "What risks?" you may rightly be asking. "I thought it had been established that it was relatively benign, almost completely non-toxic, and certainly didn't cause overdoses." Well, yeah, hippie, those things may be true, but there are other horrors that perhaps you haven't considered.

Apparently half of all 16 to 29 year olds have tried it at least once. In spite of government warnings about health risks, many people see it as a harmless substance that helps you to relax and chill a drug that, unlike alcohol and cigarettes, might even be good for your physical and mental health. Even if you subscribe to this mode of thought, it is important to note that there is a body of research which has suggested that it can be a major cause of psychotic illnesses in those who are genetically vulnerable.

What is cannabis? | Cannabis sativa and cannabis indica are members of the nettle family that have grown wild throughout the world for centuries. Both plants have been used for a variety of purposes including hemp to make rope and textiles, as a medical herb and as the popular recreational drug.

What is its legal status of cannabis? | Its illegal. If you get caught, the arresting Garda will bring you to court and prosecute you. Its difficult to predict what the outcome of this will be as it generally depends on the disposition of the judge. You could get off with a fine, or find yourself on a lengthy probation bond with a lot of sticky conditions such as attendance at an addiction counsellor and frequent Urinalysis (Piss Test). What tends to catch a lot of people out is that it doesnt matter what you paid for it, if a Garda places a high value on it, or reckons theres enough there to nail you for sale and supply, youre up shit creek and such.

Problems with cannabis use | Many perhaps most people who use cannabis do enjoy it. But it can become a problem for some people. A US organisation, marijuana-anonymous.org, defines the problems of cannabis as follows: ...if cannabis controls our lives and our thinking, and if our desires centre around marijuana - scoring it, dealing it, and finding ways to stay high so that we lose interest in all else.

Ireland - Resource, Forum; cannabis.com cannabis.com > Forum > Medical Marijuana > Activism >> Legalise Cannabis Ireland | The current legal position in relation to Cannabis in the Republic of Ireland is that it is a scheduled substance under the Misuse of Drugs Act 1977. This means that if you are caught with any amount,however small,you can be prosecuted and fined.It is also an offence to grow cannabis plants and on summary conviction for this offence, you could be liable for a fine not exceeding €1,270 or a prison sentence of up to 12 months However if the court deems that you had the cannabis in your possession with the intent of supplying it,the punishments are much more severe. Where the market value of the drugs is €13,000 or more (are vastly inflated police price estimations)the person convicted is liable for a minimum sentence of a shocking 10 years. In January 2006 it seemed as if those caught with small amounts for personal use would be handed a caution rather than put thought the courts but this plan was dropped at the 11th hour by the infamous ex-Minister for Injustice Michael McDowell. So as you can see the legal situation for cannabis enthusiasts in Ireland is not pretty.The current centre-right Government is extremely unlikely to make any change without serious pressure being exerted upon them and this pressure is unlikely to come form the pathetic opposition political parties, none of whom have had the courage to come out in support of legalisation. So it'll have to be people power once again!

Last Years March | Legalise Cannabis Ireland was founded almost a year and a half ago following several years of sporadic attempts at highlighting the fallacy that is this prohibition of cannabis. Virtually the only public Cannabis action comprised of J-Days , annual mass smoke-ups in a park. A few took place in Ireland's Capital city, Dublin but following an initial flourish, attendances were dwindling. Only a small crowd assembled in 2006 at the aptly named Marlay Park,the gathering thereafter interrupted by a nasty bunch of Gardai (Irish police) who proceeded to demand all kinds of silly information from the innocent afternoon tokers., some of whom were arrested. Join us at this years March

With that in mind, the decision was taken to organise the first ever Anti-Prohibition march to on these shores, to be held the 6th of May 2007, the same weekend as the Worldwide Marijuana March across the rest of the globe. With that, the wheels began to turn on the wagon of a new movement, eventually to be christened Legalise Cannabis Ireland. An interesting mix of people came together to take on the donkey-work of getting a campaign up and running A healthy concoction of experience, nationality and gender proved productive as the ideas began to flow. With the help of supportive Head, Hemp and Grow Stores, the campaign produced a number of well-designed, informative and accessible leaflets on topics such as medical use, the problems caused by prohibition, as well as the scourge of contaminated cannabis, a problem of particularly great magnitude in Ireland. ... more info on http://www.legalisecannabisireland.com  Visit - http://boards.cannabis.com/activism/154752-legalise-cannabis-ireland.html - for more.

Senate approves medical marijuana bill - Monday, December 15, 2008 | TRENTON BUREAU: A Senate committee today cleared a measure that would allow medical use of marijuana in New Jersey. The Senate Health, Human Services and Senior Citizens Committee voted to approve the long-stalled bill by a 6 to 1 margin; two senators abstained. The bill calls for creating “alternative treatment centers” where people with chronic and terminal diseases would be allowed access to marijuana. Supporters say marijuana is a viable treatment option to alleviate pain in many cases.

“It is the definition of basic human decency that we do whatever we can to ease the pain and suffering of people living with severe chronic and terminal diseases,” said bill sponsor Sen. Nicholas Scutari, D-Union. “When all other avenues of currently-approved pain relief have been exhausted, we need to give doctors the freedom to prescribe medical marijuana to give their patients a measure of comfort and dignity in the face of their debilitating diseases. This bill is about the most humane, compassionate option for those state residents who have nowhere else to turn in managing their illnesses.”

If ultimately approved by the full Legislature and signed by Governor Corzine, New Jersey would be the 14th state to allow medical use of marijuana.   ...   Visit - https://www.icmag.com/ic/showthread.php?t=106356.

Researchers wrote that cannabis use “was rated slightly more effective than antidepressants for anxiety and depression, Imodium for diarrhea, [over the counter] (OTC) medications for fatigue, and anti-epileptics and OTC medications for neuropathy” while cannabis was rated “slightly less effective for nausea than either prescribed or OTC medications.”   Authors concluded that cannabis “is perceived by users as at least as effective as prescribed medications in symptom management.”   ...   Visit - http://safeaccessnow.org/blog/?cat=22.

As is often the case with cannabis news, the official press release was somewhat more ambiguous, stating according to The Independent newspaper 'the government is 'considering proposals' to make cannabis medicines available by prescription'. The Department of Health is said to be mulling over the proposal, but from past experiences what it will all boil down to is how much money can the government and the pharmaceutical industry collectively earn from such a move whilst at the same time stopping people spending just a few euros at the garden centre and growing their own tax free medicine in the garden.  Visit - http://pr.cannazine.co.uk/201108081507/green/eco-news/cannabis-medicine-in-ireland-and-israel-but-not-uk.html - for more.

He operated a medical marijuana dispensary in Napa Valley and later on was prescribed medicinal marijuana, or cannabis, for post-traumatic stress disorder which he continues to use for the condition.

Now living in Dublin, Gordon (36) is conscious of the disparity between the drug laws in California and Ireland, where any use of the drug is completely illegal, even for the relief of pain and other chronic conditions. He is also at the forefront of a campaign which those involved hope will one day see people here taking the drug, free from the fear of arrest or prosecution. ...

Ireland - Resource, Org; local CARRYING CANNABIS MEDICINE TO BE LEGAL IN IRELAND - Encod.org, 20 April 2011 | Source: Irish Examiner, By Jennifer Hough | DEPARTMENT of Health officials have been instructed by the Department of Justice to enact an EU agreement which allows people to carry legally prescribed narcotic or psychotropic drugs for medical use. The move comes after Galway man Noel McCullagh, who uses a cannabis- based drug for multiple sclerosis, sought a guarantee that he wouldn’t be arrested for bringing it into the country. McCullagh, however, lost his bid as the European ombudsman who said, although he was "deeply touched" by the case, had not found a breach of European law in the matter.

Mental Health campaigner John McCarthy who is suffering from motor neuron disease and uses cannabis to manage his pain and treat spasticity in his muscles said it is a disgrace that people cannot get proper advice on the matter. "It is awful that people have to rely on supplies from friends, they don’t know where it came from, what it contains, how much to take and can’t get any advice on the matter legally."

Mr McCarthy said he has been getting at least one phone call a week since an Irish Examiner article last December, describing how he can get out of his wheelchair and walk short distances since he began taking small amounts of cannabis. "These are people who are looking for a way out from pain and are afraid not of cannabis but of the law," he said. "It is complete nonsense that you have to become a criminal to take something which will relieve painful symptoms and give a better quality of life."  Visit - http://www.encod.org/info/CARRYING-CANNABIS-MEDICINE-TO-BE.html - for more.

Ireland - Resource, Org; local The NORML Stash - ABNORML NEWS, ACTIVISM > Cannabis on sale in Ireland now eight times stronger – – National News, Frontpage, Herald.ie | HERBAL cannabis on sale in Ireland is now up to eight times stronger than it was a decade ago, an addiction expert has said. Skunk is more potent than the more common cannabis resin, and the evidence is the varieties coming to Ireland are getting stronger. Shay Pegley of the Addiction Training Institute said cannabis was still Ireland’s “number one drug of choice”. Mr Pegley said he was “not surprised” by the skunk seizures made in recent months.

“What is available now seems to be a lot more potent than it was 10 years ago,” Mr Pegley said. “Some reports would put it at between five and eight times stronger than it was. Skunk poses new dangers in terms of exposing latent psychological issues like paranoia and schizophrenia.” That’s odd, because this 2004 report from the European Monitoring Centre for Drugs and Drug Addiction states: Today’s study reveals that when the overall potency of cannabis products available on the European market is calculated, there is no evidence of a significant increase in potency. This is because, in most EU countries, imported cannabis (herbal and resin) dominates the market and this has remained stable over many years.

Today’s report shows that effective potency of cannabis in nearly all EU countries has remained quite stable for many years, at around 6–8% THC. ... and I am a registered medical marijuana caregiver in this state.  Visit - http://stash.norml.org/cannabis-on-sale-in-ireland-now-eight-times-stronger - for more.

Ireland - Resource, News; local TokeOfTheTown.com - Ireland Could Legalize Medical Cannabis Within Two Years - By Steve Elliott ~alapoet~ in Global, Medical - Wednesday, September 22, 2010 | There have been several very important developments on the Irish medical cannabis front over the past few weeks, which have led many to believe that Ireland could be set to legalize medicinal marijuana within two years. The first significant development happened on September 10, when Ireland's Minister for Health, Mary Harney, said she would be "open" to legalizing cannabis for medical purposes. Harney said she would get expert opinions on the matter, with a view to making a decision on the issue by the end of the year, reports Daniel O'Carroll at Irish Central.

This in itself represents huge progress from the old days, when government authorities said they would not consider the idea of legalizing cannabis for any purpose. That hopeful note was followed shortly after by a meeting between Gordon McArdle, one of Ireland's most prominent cannabis advocates, and Minister Pat Carey, the man in charge of the country's drug policies.  Visit - http://www.tokeofthetown.com/2010/09/ireland_could_legalize_medical_cannabis_within_two.php - for more.

Posted on Tuesday, September 21, 2010 at 10:05 PM Could Ireland legalize medical marijuana? Despite the story having been pushed out of the Irish media limelight by the Brian Cowen 'Gargle-gate' fiasco, there have been several very important movements in the Irish medical cannabis question over the past few weeks, which have led many to believe that Ireland could be set to legalize medical cannabis within a couple of years. The first significant development took place on the 10th of September, just over 10 days ago, when Ireland's Minister for Health, Mary Harney, said that she would be 'open' to the question of medical marijuana and would solicit expert opinion on the matter with a view to making a decision on the issue by the end of the year.

Under Irish law cannabis is not recognised as having any medical benefits. The most recent ... Marijuana is one of the most beneficial and therapeutically active substances known to man. Medical Cannabis refers to the use of the drug cannabis as a physician-recommended herbal therapy, most notably as an antiemetic. Cannabis has been used for medicinal purposes for approximately 4,000 years. Writings from ancient India confirm that its psychoactive properties were recognized, and doctors used it for a variety of illnesses and ailments. These included a whole host of gastrointestinal disorders, insomnia, headaches and as a pain reliever frequently used in childbirth.

In the 1970s, a synthetic version of THC, the primary active ingredient in cannabis, was synthesized to make the drug Marinol. Due to the prohibition of marijuana however; it's use as a medicine is restricted. However, recent Canadian government legislation have made it more available to patients. Patients are now able to apply for personal possession and even a limited cultivation license.

Flanagan | Ireland is a country that is famous for drinking, but like everywhere else in the world, Cannabis Nation has a toehold in the Emerald Isle. While one may not expect to find marijuana reformers and activists in Ireland, it seems that no matter where you go in the world someone wants to end prohibition and Ireland is no different. While Irish culture may differ from that of the US or even England, the marijuana laws are similar, and there are marijuana reformers in Ireland with the same goals and solutions to prohibition that we have here in the States. Under the Misuse of Drugs Act of 1977 and 1984, marijuana is considered an illegal substance in Ireland. However, the Irish police, An Garda Siochana, distinguish between possession for personal use and possession for sale or supply. Possession of cannabis or cannabis resin is treated less severely than other drugs. The punishment for the first and second conviction of cannabis possession is a fine and after the third conviction, a fine and up to three years in prison. The penalties for possession or trafficking of hard drugs are stiffer.

There are political parties supporting legalization in Ireland, but most of those in favor are hesitant to vocalize their support. For example, Sinn Fein and the Greens, left-of-center parties, rarely mention cannabis. CCPR will be targeting these parties, encouraging them to speak up. CCPR's cannabis/alcohol equalization initiative may educate some politicians who weren't aware of the facts, and hopefully over the coming months the Initiative will be discussed in detail.  Visit - http://stopthedrugwar.org/chronicle-old/436/ireland.shtml - for more.

Russia - Resources US Government Says It Will Stop Interfering with Medical Marijuana | According to this article, US Attorney General Eric Holder has said that states will be allowed to make their own rules about medical marijuana, and that the US federal government will stop raiding medical marijuana dispensaries in California. (See article “Can Marijuana Help Rescue California’s Economy?”at this link) In the 1990s, several US states passed referendums which allowed marijuana to be used legally for medical purposes. In a referendum, the registered voters vote directly on the proposed law, as opposed to the law being passed by the state legislature. Thus, when these states passed these referendums, it meant that the citizens of these states really wanted medical marijuana to be made legal.

However, in a blatant disregard for democracy and the people’s will, under the Bush administration, the national government refused to accept this law, and carried out raids of the medical marijuana dispensaries.   ...   Click > here < for more.

Medical Cannabis, History - Letter: Medical Marijuana Informational Guide on Medical Cannabis | If you have ever heard of the song, “Lets Go Get Stoned,” as sung by Ray Charles or Joe Cocker, you know the lyrics were referring to getting high or using cannabis aka marijuana. This mind altering drug goes by other names as well; names such as weed, pot, joint, blunt, hash and mary jane are quite common among users. Cannabis is a plant that contains a chemical called cannabinoids or cannabinolidic acids. Another substance that is found in cannabis is THC, or Tetrahydrocannabinol, which gives the users that “high” sensation. When speaking of marijuana, the actual substance used in creating the high feeling comes from the leaves and flowering tops of the cannabis plant. Marijuana is considered to be a schedule 1 controlled substance today, because of the THC, which can be highly potent, depending upon the concentration factor of the THC.

Yet based upon mortality statistics, we can safely conclude that cannabis is one of the safest medical drugs known, for, while prescription drugs, defined as safe by the FDA, kill up to 27,000 and aspirin up to 1,000 Americans per year, cannabis kills 0 per year.
