Ireland rushes law after inadvertently legalising drugs

Ireland's parliament sat late into the night to rush through emergency laws to close a loophole making the possession of magic mushrooms and other drugs temporarily legalIreland’s parliament sat late into the night Tuesday to rush through emergency laws to close a loophole making the possession of ecstasy, ketamine, magic mushrooms and other drugs temporarily legal. The situation arose after the Court of Appeal struck down part of Ireland’s 1977 Misuse of Drugs Act after a legal challenge. Varadkar said legislation had been prepared in advance of the court decision and that it would pass both houses of parliament within 24 hours. The legal challenge was brought by a man prosecuted for possession of methylethcathinone, a substance once stocked by “head shops” that sell legal or herbal stimulants.
