Citizens' Assembly on Drugs Use to publish final report

The Citizens’ Assembly on Drugs Use, which last year recommended the decriminalisation of possessing drugs for personal use, is to publish its final report this afternoon.

The citizens’ assembly, which began in April 2023, last October published a summary of its 36 recommendations producing a new Irish model of legislation, policy and service to reduce the harm caused by illicit drugs use.

The final report, which was originally expected late last year, will outline the work of the assembly over its six-month lifespan, including summaries of more than 120 presentations, 200 hours of discussion and 800 public submissions.

The launch event will be livestreamed on at 1pm.
