A member of the Irish College of General Practitioners, part of their guidelines development group, has said he supports the decriminalisation of cannabis use.
Dr Cathal Ó Súilleabháin insisted that legalising the use of cannabis would not be a case of throwing another substance open to abuse “into the mix”.
He told RTÉ Radio 1′s This Week: “It’s already out there and widely used. The purpose of this bill is not to increase cannabis use. Indeed there is no evidence around the world where law have been relaxed and decriminalisation has happened that increased use occurs.
