decriminalisation of drug use

MEETING OF SOUTH DUBLIN COUNTY COUNCIL

Monday, January 11, 2016

MOTION NO.2

MOTION: Councillor F. Timmons

That this Council supports the decriminalisation of drug use, meaning that people will no longer be made criminals simply because of their use of a drug: that people’s drug use should be dealt with as a public health issue rather than as a criminal issue and that the resources currently used to process the 72% of drug convictions that are for personal possession should be redirected to treatment and support services and to more effective policing of the drugs trade.

REPORT:

If the Motion is passed a letter will issue to the appropriate Minister, and when a reply is received it will be issued to the Members.
