This week on Century of Lies: Ireland’s Citizens’ Assembly On Drugs Use.

The government of the Republic of Ireland established its Citizens’ Assembly on Drugs Use to “consider the legislative, policy and operational changes Ireland could make to significantly reduce the harmful impacts of illicit drugs on individuals, families, communities and wider Irish society.” The Assembly is nearing the end of its scheduled meetings and is starting to focus on policy options and legal frameworks. On this edition of Century we hear portions of the Assembly’s September Third meeting including presentations from Brendan Hughes from the European Monitoring Center on Drugs and Drug Addiction, Eddie D’Arcy from Youth Workers Against Prohibition, Graham Temple from Crainn, and Doctor Deirdre Healy from University College Dublin.
