Herb is for the Healing of the Nation:Medical Marijuana Legislation in Ireland and it’s significance to economic growth.


If the Government of Ireland was to legalize cannabis by regulating its quantity being prescribed ; something like the dispensaries in the U.S. whereby a patient could obtain a licence to purchase and cultivate small dosages with the support of their General Practitioner ,wouldn’t you think they would be in favour of allowing an individual his or her human right to moderate pain relief.What is stopping it from becoming a taxable industry thus helping to boost the economy.Estimates have already been predicted that annual turnover could be in the billions if  it’s legislation was structured properly.

What is not acceptable in my opinion is the person who gets labelled a criminal for growing a few cannabis plants for the purpose of easing pain for debilitating health conditions such as Anorexia Nervosa,Multiple Sclerosis,Cancer or H.I.V/A.I.D.S..  For this very reason I believe it is against human rights to prevent a mature adult from choosing to smoke a little infrequently in its purest form for short-term pain relief or taken in a capsule preparation for a chronic health complaint. Cannabis tourism is often the only option for patients seeking its medicinal benefits, generally tourism of this kind is not a problem,it is education surrounding its use be it  spiritual,medicinal or recreational. Whether we like it or not it is a natural plant that has been around from the beginning of time ,who are we to say it shouldn’t exist.

A lot could  be said about Ireland’s drink culture  with regards to the cost to public health.The Research is already there to support its economic benefits and if the government is to factually base any criteria they must first weigh the pro’s and cons of this debate before making it a shut case.The conclusion I have reached with regards to this debate is that propaganda is central to the agenda and it is this that holds it firmly within the  schedule 1 of the misuse of drugs act  1997,1984.
