    The Legalise Cannabis March of 2013 will take place in Dublin on Saturday the 15th of June at 2pm, at The Garden of Remembrance. It's quite clear that Irish legislation needs to change for the benefit of every person in this country.
    Cannabis has been used as a medicine for thousands of years all over the world. By the 19th and early 20th centuries it was widely used in western medicine. In peer reviewed scientific studies it has been proven to be effective in the treatment of a wide variety of illnesses including MS, glaucoma, anorexia, alzheimers, depression and even cancer.

    It is estimated that tax revenue from cannabis could well exceed 1 billion euro per annum. Thousands of much needed jobs would be created in a range of sectors of the economy. Agriculture, construction, arts and tourism are but a few.

    Decriminalising and monitoring cannabis would recoup money and power away from the criminal elements and transfer it into the hands of the taxpayer. Gangland criminals would lose the ability to make money off cannabis. Our prison services and police time would also be put to better use.

    Regulating cannabis would stop dealers contaminating the plant with glass and other harmful chemicals which damage the health of cannabis smokers.
    LCI is an all Ireland association advocating the right for Irish people to have the choice of using cannabis free from unwarranted interference and stigmatisation. We seek investment and research enabling informed choice, and creating the possibility of access to cannabis-based medicines and safe recreational cannabis products.
