Ecstasy Is Legal in Ireland for the Next 48 Hours!

    Ecstasy, ketamine, and crystal meth are all currently legal in Ireland, after a Court of Appeal fuck up regarding the Misuse of Drugs Act 1977.

    As The Journal reports—and if you don't like extremely dry retellings of legal goofs, we're sorry, but this is the backstory to why it's legal to crawl around Dublin in a K-hole right now– a Court of Appeal ruling made this morning, March 10, declared the 1977 Act void, effectively rendering ecstasy, ketamine, just a little taste of crystal meth, and Methylcathinone (also known as, strangely, "cat" and "jeff") legal until emergency legislation can be passed overnight.

    Basically, the ruling found that additions to the 1997 Act were being made without recourse to Irish Parliament (Oireachtas), an act deemed unconstitutional by the Court of Appeal. With the Act now void, all the drugs it shakes a matronly finger at and tells you not to ingest are legal until emergency legislation can be patched together by Seanad, the upper house of the Oireachtas.

    With members not being able to meet until tomorrow—and a provision tacked on to the bill stating it can only take effect the day after it is signed into law—it's legally OK to get absolutely Bezzed off of your face until midnight on Thursday, at which point you must abruptly stop being high.

    In case you haven't checked already, afternoon flights from New York to Dublin are currently sitting at around $700.

    In a country where growing personal weed in your basement will get you put in chains by The Crown forever, it sure is one huge oversight! Great news find.

    Well, this should be interesting! I know somebody is going to review the data and analyze its contents to determine what really should be banned or not banned (or scheduled). Especially the crime database in regards to violence.

    It'd be great if they left shrooms off the rebanning list.

    It was so cool back in 2004 just simply buying them from a days of picking wild shrooms off a golf course every October are long gone.

    I can just see a load of people fedexing coke from Latin America before the law comes back in.

    I wonder if people could possible appeals their convictions now on the basis of this incident.

    We live in interesting times.
