Clare Independent TD Advocates For Legalisation Of Drugs

A Clare Independent TD is calling on the government to stop ‘wasting’ garda resources by chasing drug dealers.

Speaking in the Dáil, Scariff-based TD Michael McNamara, advocated for drugs to be legalised in order to ‘take the trade out of dealer’s hands’.

Deputy McNamara noted that despite the prosecution of prominent figures within Ireland’s drug catels, the prevalence of illegal substances has risen astronomically.



He believes that drug use should instead be viewed as a health issue, rather than a legal battle.
