Never in my younger life did I imagine that one day that the Irish would enjoy more civil liberties/freedoms than we do in the States.

Meanwhile, this places Ireland higher on the list of countries to which I would enjoy emigrating before our system collapses into a morass of derp.

One, the article says it is being discussed, it hasn't been voted on.  Two, it only legalized a small amount of possession, still have to buy on the black market, can't grow your own..  And weed is legal in large chunks of the U.S. right now.

Georgia is tough, even the dem running for Governor was against legalizing it.  Good thing about Michigan is that it was on the ballot, so the politicians were largely shut out (though some did try to interfere)

Ever since Oklahoma passed just medical, you can't spit without hitting a dispensary.  Any time a small business or convenience store closes, it becomes a dispensary within a few months.  In some places, they're nextdoor neighbors.  I probably pass 15 just coming to work (it'd be more, but I take several miles of interstate), and there are at least 4 at the corner of my street.  They're pushing for recreational.  Might take a few attempts over a couple years, but it'll be like tattoos.  The dispensaries will probably face an influx of customers, until the favorites and the ability to grow at home win out, and then every other store won't be a pot shop.  And this is Oklahoma.

On my visits to L.A. in recent years, it's just a given.  There weren't rows of weed stores with stupid names that felt like junior high-level "LOL, WEED!".  It was kinda obnoxious when you'd get a group of people outside of Norm's contantly smoking to the point that the inside waiting area smelled like a high school party, but whatever.  I don't think I or the Mrs. friends ever got tired of laughing and telling her that skunks weren't an issue where we were running around.

You just need to live in the parts of the US that aren't a complete shiathole. We don't all live in Texas or Utah or Wyoming or Mississippi.

Here in Michigan, we have had legal weed longer than Ireland and legal abortion longer than Ireland and banned capital punishment well before Ireland did.

Making Ireland just another one of the 190+ countries that won't allow you to emigrate.
Because most countries actually do enforce their rules.

Once you get away from Cobb County, most jurisdictions are pretty chill.  As long as you're discreet, the cops have other tickets to issue with more revenue and fewer hassles than going after the casual user.

The real hassle is the number of employers still insisting on preemployment drug testing.  If you get past that hurdle, most employers will spark up with you after work, but the insurance companies demand sober job seekers, so the companies fall in line.

Good luck Ireland.  Hope you have smarter folks than we do.

In New York we have actual non legal dispensaries not even trying to hide. If you know the right people you can buy a pound of the high end stuff for $1800 or a pound of decent outdoor for like $700. the legal recreational dispensaries are about to open too. Employers are not legally permitted to test prospective hires for thc. Adults over 21 can legally carry up to 3 ounces of flower of 24 grams of concentrate and may have 5 pounds (yes I said pounds) in their home. Medical patients can grow at home now too. It may be super expensive, have high taxes and be kind of a difficult state to live in but, we have more and cheaper weed then Ireland ever will.
