Ireland Is Considering Legalizing 3 Drugs. What Are Your Thoughts?
There is an organization in Ireland named the NDS( National Drug Strategy). They are in charge of solving the drug abuse in their country only. The minister thought it would be a good Idea to legalize Marijuana, heroin and cocaine. Aodhán Ó Ríordáin, the head minister of the NDS in Ireland says that there need to be a "cultural shift". His thoughts are that by making those three drugs legal, they can contain the use of it.
Ríordáin also says "By as soon as 2016, drug users will be able to use “injecting rooms” in Dublin, and several other major Irish cities will follow suit soon thereafter, granted the NDS has no trouble removing the legislative obstacles that stand in the rooms’ way."
My mind is running wild right now. I do not believe that legalizing these 3 main drugs are going to help contain and prevent the abuse of it. There will still people who well sell it under the table and there will also be law matters for that. I also believe that legalizing it is not a good look for kids to see it on TV because once it is legal, profits will be made off of it and commercials will be broadcasted on TV. What are your thoughts?
