The Court of Appeal in Ireland rules possession of ecstasy and other psychoactive drugs legal.

As liberal a country as we are, we were the first in the world to ban smoking in the workplace, this is way over the top.
Probably only for the next 24 hours following an appeal in a court case.

Possession of ecstasy, magic mushrooms, so called head shop drugs and other new psychoactive drugs is legal for the next 24 hours following a decision by the Court of Appeal today.
The sale, supply or importation of such drugs is still illegal and the Government is introducing legislation over the next 24 hours to deal with the situation.
The outcome of this case does not affect existing laws regarding the supply, possession or sale of older drugs such as heroin, coc aine or cannabis. Today's case dealt with the powers of the Government to control substances which are harmful to human health under Section 2 (2) of the Act of the Misuse of Drugs Act 1977.
A spokesman for the Department of Health has said that existing convictions stand and that the only convictions affected are those currently in train.
Minister for Health Leo Varadkar earlier said each case would be looked at individually and that that is a matter for the Director of Public Prosecutions.
He said an appeal was under consideration by the Governme

So there wont be any mad raves with people popping pills freely anytime soon.

Still, for a day ecstasy is legal in Ireland.

I'll try and find the relevant court case

What's the big deal? Thousands die of alcohol, and there'd be much less fighting if more people were MDMA'd up.
Good decision if you ask me, but hey, I was a 90's raver.

For some reason I'm feeling the urge to make a Leprechaun joke, you know the magical "little people" sometimes seen?

Even if it remained legal permanently, it wouldn't make life as a dealer any easier. The IRA hates drug dealers and they have a nasty habit of knee capping or straight up killing those they can't persuade into stopping their sales.

Good

Sure they may be handful of deaths but Hopefully it will stop the influx of "legal" highs that are far far far more dangerous even if it is for a day

Me too, although i was more of a clubber.

Obviously there are less deaths from ecstasy but it will never be legal to sell it. Its a powerful psychoactive and extremely mind altering. For a government to legalise a drug that powerful would set a dangerous precedant

Alcohol and tobacco are legal and are the two biggest killers.

They will never be made illegal due to the tax take.

As someone who dabbles in DJ'ing electronic music (house/trance/ect) -- I know where all the big named DJs will be playing (along with Ibiza) now...

Sennheiser is an Irish company, they make some of the best headphones for DJing out there -- I know I love my HD-25 II's. When I saw "Made in Ireland" on them, I was a little more than surprised, as I've never owned anything made from there before.

One thing I'll say about the Irish -- they make awesome headphones.

The IRA scumbags are the drug dealers...

Do you have a soundcloud page?

Or anywhere you have a mix maybe?

I'm sort of with you there, but to be honest I forget it's actually illegal the amount of it I still see quite openly in festivals, dance parties and the like in my part of the world. I've had many a cop tell me over the years they don't really give a toss about MDMA use, just public order, and they all prefer to police an event where most people are on MDMA than coke'd up/amphet and drinking alcohol. Much less violence, much less.

This is good news. Ecstasy isn't bad for you. SHHHH! Don't let the drug czars hear me say that though.

You're right. My mistake. I was thinking northern Ireland for some reason. Not enough caffeine in my system apparently.

Not anymore, I actually put my mixer away not to long ago because I haven't had time to use it.


I never cared for Soundcloud...Ideally I'd get my own domain and hosting for something like that.
