In this article, Shane Butler revisits the First Report of the Ministerial Task Force on Measures to Reduce the Demand for Drugs better known as the 'Rabbitte report' to examine how the report has influenced Irish drugs policy since its publication in 1996. He concludes that the Rabbitte report introduced a more 'normalised' and routine style of drug policy making in Ireland and that the statutory structures put in place as a result of the report, including the Local Drugs Task Forces, continue to operate as part of the national response to the drugs situation.
