Wonderful and Surprising News for ALL Cannabis Smokers, Shops, Growers and Associations
New law takes effect from 1st July
Fine is now €601 and not €1000 as planned
On-the-spot penalty notices for "possession of any amount of illegal substance in public places, roads, public buildings or on public transport" (Art. 36.16)
The wonderful news is they added to Article 36 - for the first time - Section 18 regarding the cultivation of cannabis, which says it's only punishable if "visible in public places".
- "It's considered a serious offence the unlawful act of planting and cultivation of toxic substances, narcotics or psychotropic substances in visible public places" (Art. 36.18)
Credit for decriminalization with this new wording of the law can be given to the government and a parliamentary majority.
- NO penalty for cultivation indoors, at home, on a farm, in a greenhouse, in your back yard... THEY CAN'T FINE OR ARREST YOU!!
|Now all they need to do is remove the prison sentences and fines for selling and possession?|
