A police dog named James led officers to 55 kilograms of cannabis and two kg of cannabis-infused sweets at a port in Dublin, reports the Irish Examiner . The drugs were concealed in suitcases inside a commercial vehicle and reportedly have a value of 1.2 million euros ($1.8 million). This CBD retailer in Ireland keeps getting raided by the police Gino Kenny: The story of cannabis in Ireland is a tale of chronic pain and a hesitant government Ireland’s health minister isn’t apologizing for past cannabis use, supports legalization An Irish man in his 50s has been arrested in connection to the seizure. According to a statement from Revenue , a department of Irish tax and customs, the vehicle had disembarked a ferry from Holyhead. A mobile X-ray scanner was also used in the search. “These seizures are part of Revenue’s ongoing operations targeting the importation of illegal drugs,” the press release states. Recreational cannabis is illegal in Ireland, though medical exemptions can be granted on a case-by-case basis. Gino Kenny, a member of the Irish Parliament, was instrumental in getting a medical cannabis program off the ground, but says it remains too restrictive. “It’s inevitable that thousands of people will be prescribed medical cannabis in the future,” Kenny wrote in an op-ed for The GrowthOp last year. “You only have to observe other jurisdictions where the use of medical cannabis as a treatment is routine. In time, the Irish people will look back and be left with no other option but to lambast those who made it so difficult for the many who stand to benefit.”
