 581. Deputy Brendan Griffin asked the Minister for Justice and Equality the efforts he is making to stigmatise the supporting of the illegal drugs market via the purchase of illegal drugs by casual drug users; his views on whether enough is being done to highlight to people the contribution they make to organised crime, including murder, when they buy drugs; and if he will make a statement on the matter. [3771/14] 

Minister for Justice and Equality (Deputy Alan Shatter): As the Deputy's question quite rightly highlights, in order for illicit drug markets to exist, there must be demand.
