    On Wednesday 26th of September one of UCC’s newest societies, the Drug Awareness and Reform Society is hosting its first event. The talk “Drug Policy Reform in Ireland” takes place at Boole Basement 3 in UCC at 7pm.

    Speaking on the night is Criminologist and author of “The Irish War on Drugs: The Seductive Folly of Prohibition” Dr.Paul O’Mahony. He will be discussing the need for reform of Irish drug policy and raising many interesting points.

    Also speaking is Tim Bingham of the Irish Needle Exchange Forum, The INEF aims to develop, support and sustain networks of needle exchanges and other harm reduction services across Ireland. Mr.Bingham will be discussing safer injecting facilities.

    This is the first of many planned events by the Drug Awareness and Reform Society, which will strive to educate the public on drug related matters, while also encouraging a different approach, legislatively and socially in dealing with the issues of drugs in Ireland.

    The event is open to all members of the public and public interaction is encouraged, so questions to the speakers or comments to the floor will be welcome. We hope to see you there.
