The Department of Health is bringing in legislation to legalise the use of medicinal marijuana in Ireland. The push for the legislation is a result of various applications from drug companies wishing to sell cannabis based medicines in Ireland. A spokesperson from the Department of Health has stressed the fact that, if the new legislation is passed it in no way decriminalises the recreational use of marijuana.

Many countries around the globe have legalised the use of marijuana for medicinal purposes such as; sclerosis, asthma, cancer, anxiety and depression. The previous junior Health Minister, Roisin Shortall said last year she was going through proposals to make cannabis-based medicines available in Ireland. The Irish Medicines board has also been approached by a manufacturer requesting permission to sell medicines containing cannabis.

According to departmental briefing documents prepared for Health Minister James Reilly, officials were revising plans to allow travellers from other EU countries to legally bring marijuana based products prescribed for medicinal use into Ireland.

A spokesperson for the Irish Medicines board stated, “Department officials have been engaging with experts on how best to legally describe authorised cannabis-based medicinal products while maintaining existing controls on cannabis and cannabis substances to enable such authorised medicinal products to be prescribed in Ireland and used by patients. While it is not possible to set out an exact time frame, it is hoped to bring forward legislative proposals in early 2013.”

In the US, during the presidential campaign, two states, Colorado and Washington completely decriminalised the use of cannabis for both medicinal and recreational use. In 2010 Color

    Am George from Utah and It is a privilege for me to share with you about a bountiful healing concerning my wife.

    My Wife was diagnosed with Breast cancer with metastases with bone/liver/ovary involvement, after so many Chemo and Radiation. I came across Rick Simpson through several testimonies of his Cannabis oil and I was able to contact him at:, but the cannabis oil from Rick Simpson and I have been using Cannabis Oil to treat my wife cancerous diseases for the past 5 months. It’s been about 4 months since She stopped using it. All of the positive effects are still there. My wife is now healthy with no cancer in her body system anymore. Essentially her body feels like a 20 years old girl,while in reality she is 41 years old. Within 5 months of being on the oil She started to loose pounds, her metabolism is super fast. She can eat burgers at fast food joints and still loose weight. She sleep through the night, her digestive system works better than it ever has. she have NO back pain whatsoever. Even after being off the meds this long. This stuff is simply amazing. For help email:,she is no longer a victim of cancer and I would love every other cancer patient at there to contact Rick Simpson for help via: she do not have cancer anymore, but she still use her follow up medication for other cleansing of the body system. she started to use the oil to find its other benefits. Rick Simpson told us about how he believes the oil can reverse aging. I’m hoping it will slow it down or stop it completely. Not sure what to expect after prolonged use. I will update you guys to my findings of Rick Simpson HEMP OIL. Am using this medium to let you know that Rick Simpson HEMP OIL Oil will guarantee the total eradication of all types of cancers and other diseases as well. for help email:
