Legalise Cannabis Ireland Campaign has held a rally outside the gates of Dail Éireann on Thursday 14th of June, on Kildare Street. The rally coincided with the election of the Taoiseach.
Legalise Cannabis Ireland Campaign Spokesperson, Tim Reilly, commented, "We have held street stalls, organised thee music events – 'Smoke Signals' in Dublin city centre and launched the first ever Anti-Prohibition demonstration on the 6th of May in support of legalising Cannabis recreational use, medical application and encouraging the industrial Hemp use. 1000 people marched in peaceful solidarity to Legalise Cannabis on May 6th and there was not a single arrest on the day."
"Legalise Cannabis Ireland Campaign is calling on the Taoiseach to include a commitment to decriminalise the use of Cannabis, legalise the sale and growth of cannabis and regulate its supply. We are tired of being treated as criminals for using Cannabis and call on the new Taoiseach to acknowledge that the current drug laws are unjust, unworkable and unfair.
"We have been getting a large amount of interest from the public since the massive success of the May 6th rally."
Mr Reilly urged anyone interested in realising the Legalisation of Cannabis to join with Legalise Cannabis Ireland Campaign in solidarity with the vast numbers of people who choose to use cannabis and are currently criminals in the eyes of the law.
