[Oireachtas] Order of business: Sale of drugs inside and outside schools. (12 Jul 2011)

Deputy Seán Crowe: We know that the age group of those engaged in selling and taking drugs is getting younger and younger. This is particularly a problem inside and outside schools and in their vicinities. In other jurisdictions there are heavier sentences for such offences. Legislation is pending to deal with the issue of drugs. Will this issue be dealt with in the legislation? 

The Taoiseach: I do not have a date for the legislation but the point made by the Deputy is valid. When the Bill is published the issue of concern to the Deputy will be central to it. We cannot have the lives of young people threatened and imposed on by this most reprehensible carry-on.
