There is a catch though, using drugs and selling them are two different things. Oh, and weed, heroine and coke, are still illegal.
Reports The Daily Beast:
Due to a ruling in the Court of Appeals in Ireland, the 1977 Misuse of Drugs Act has been deemed unconstitutional. But while the Irish Government works to close a loophole, drugs including ecstasy, ketamine and crystal meth are now legal.
The sale, supply, import and export of those drugs remain illegal. Can’t win ‘em all.
Health Minister Leo Varadkar, in an act of sheer buzz-killery, urged those tempted by the drugs’ newfound legality to consider the “potential harmful impact they might have.” A recommendation he makes to the no-doubt thousands of people who have their dealer’s number on speed dial and have their fingers twitching in anticipation, but have been put off solely by the illegality of drug use.
While the government tries to work this little mishap out, the drugs remain legal until Thursday at midnight.
