For today's week news we go to the great nation of Ireland.
With Great Britain starting the rollout of their medical marijuana program, neighboring Ireland is hoping to follow suit ASAP.
Ireland's Health Minister Simon Harris recently announced that legalizing MMJ is already on his 2019 to do list! On top of that, it is estimated that more than 3/4 of Ireland's eligible voters, actually closer to 80% of them, support medical cannabis legalization.
And in addition, Leo Varadkar, Ireland's Head of State has also been talking about cannabis decriminalization and cannabis law reform in general.
Sounds like a lot of pieces are already in place for something monumental to take place in the near future.
"This is a major priority for me and I really want to see it happen," said Minister Harris in a recent interview.
The Minister was also quick to point out that he is not talking about recreational cannabis, only MMJ.
"This is about using in a controlled way, in a monitored way, with the support of your clinician for a product that could ease your pain and suffering after you've tried all the conventional treatments," Harris continued.
Although in my opinion dude sounds overly cautious and doesn't really seem to understand everything that this plant can do, it's still a very good start to get people accustomed to cannabis no longer being so taboo.
As far as details about any proposed plan go, they are still being worked out. But there are already plans to start by importing product from elsewhere before Ireland has time to set up their own grow operations and in turn create their own supply of meds.
"What we're likely to do in the first course of action is to try and secure a product... Then in the medium-term, talking about growing our own and securing our own supply in Ireland is the sensible thing to do," explained Harris.
The government wants to take some action at the beginning of next year and let the people of Ireland enjoy the soothing relief that cannabis can bring as soon as possible.
I really hope that they don't overdo it with the restrictions and hoops to jump through. I feel like they should model their MMJ program more after some medical marijuana states here in the US rather than what they're doing out there in England. But that's just my opinion.
And as with many of these stories, there's nothing else to do but just keep watching this shit unfold man... Unless you live in Ireland and in that case take action today to make sure that this shit happens for you guys man.
I'm pulling for you guys... let's go!
And that's what's up in Ireland!
