The Report of the Citizens’ Assembly on Drugs Use

The Citizens’ Assembly on Drugs Use has published its final report that includes 36 recommendations for a new Irish model to reduce the harm caused by illicit drugs use.

The report and recommendations propose significant changes to existing laws governing penalties for the possession of drugs for personal use, greater funding for, and resourcing of, services at national and local levels, greater oversight and accountability at Cabinet level, and a broader focus on prevention measures and education about the harmful impact of drugs use.
