Sorry for the delay in posting.
A few days ago the responses from the Newstalk and You Tube 'Digital Debate' were put online. The 5 party leaders were asked 10 questions on numerous issues, among them this one
"Will your party commit to legalising and taxing cannabis for personal use, thereby generating a significant new source of tax revenues, saving Gardai and court resources, and allowing access to those with a medical need?"
