Wicklow TD Launches New Plan On Health-Based Approach To Personal Drug Use

The plans will see someone get a referral to the HSE the first time they're caught, then a Garda caution before being prosecuted the third time.

The new system will be rolled out this time next year.

Critics say the proposals don't go far enough and that decriminalisation should've been looked at.

Health Minister Wicklow TD Simon Harris insists it's the right approach.
