First batch of the new A3 Regulate Cannabis Signs have arrived as we move towards September and the campaign moves into action.
Meanwhile, in other cannabinoid related news..
The plants look illegal.
But they’re not.

You can now get hold of our new outdoor strain Irish Kush with 0.2% THC 4-5% #CBD from our main distributor @Hempture in Ireland…
Sales of the controversial, but legal Irish Kush far surpass expectations…
Interesting passage from a book published in 1844 about the medical uses of cannabis "Medicines, their uses and mode of administration" by Dr John Moore Neligan. I guess in 2018, we're still playing catch up. Note the part dealing with infantile convulsions. @broadsheet_ie pic.twitter.com/ahycMinbHe

Niall Neligan writes:
With 4/20 just around the corner, its time to put cannabis regulation firmly on the political agenda.
As the movement to regulate cannabis for both adult and medicinal use spreads across North America and beyond, it is time for the Irish government to chart a clear regulatory course that will transition an illicit market worth approximately €1Billion per annum into a regulated market.
If properly done, a regulated market could generate as much as €300 million in additional revenue for the state each year and create 15,000 new jobs by 2025.
Given developments elsewhere, and the real likelihood that European states such as the Netherlands, Spain, Portugal, Greece, Malta, the Czech Republic (not to mention Germany) will most likely regulate by 2021, can Ireland really afford to miss out by relying on outdated policies born out of ignorance and social conservativeism?
The economic and business case for Regulation of Cannabis for Medical and Adult use is now sufficiently strong to end the failed policy of prohibition and allow Ireland and Irish companies to participate in The Green Rush…

Our new billboard at the entrance to Jervis Centre seems to be causing some commotion.

Shocking to hear @veras1 has collapsed outside the #Dáil as it looks likely government will introduce a restricted medicinal cannabis bill that won’t help Ava Barry #Veratwomey #Dáil pic.twitter.com/rohwlXeJc5

I just spoke on #MedicinalCannabis Bill and it appears FF and SF are going to support the Bill now, public pressure has clearly been a part of this. It shows that campaigning can have impact, particularly the campaign work of Vera Twomey @veras1 #dubw #Dáil

Interesting development with Gino Kenny’s Medical Cannabis Bill – Health Committee recommended killing the Bill, but now FF and SF members of that committee seem to be changing their views to allow it to proceed – heavily amended.

More as we get it.
The Government has agreed to allow the progression of legislation to provide for medical cannabis to the next legislative stage.
The move is despite the fact that the Oireachtas Committee on Health recommended withdrawing Gino Kenny’s bill because of “fundamental flaws” in the legislation.
Minister of State at the department of Justice and Equality David Stanton said he was of the view that “if you have a very flawed piece of legislation, it might not be possible to amend it, perhaps it should be redrafted and resubmitted”.
However he said there seemed to be a consensus among TDs that the bill should proceed to Committee stage in the Dáil.

From the weekend…
“The internal Audit Committee of An Garda Síochána has said it was “very concerned” that senior garda management did not tell it about the existence of thousands of fake breath tests or unreliable fixed notice convictions.”
“…The committee, which oversees spending in the force, said it was kept totally in the dark over both issues despite senior management knowing about them in the previous year.”
