Fr Peter McVerry,- who has worked with the homeless and drug users for most of his life said he would like to see drugs “across the board” legalised. The difference between legalisation and decriminalisation is that in the case of the latter a person found in possession of drugs for personal use would not be given a criminal conviction. Legalisation however would mean the buying, importing and selling of drugs would be legal and regulated by the State.
