During the next 24 hours, somewhere in Ireland – probably Dublin, an opportunistic club is going to have the rave to end all raves. Packets of pingas will be strewn at the feet of people burning shards in broken light bulbs. People will exploring new depths of the K-hole, and the boys in blue will be watching from across the road, powerless.

This is because Ireland’s Misuse of Drugs Act 1977 was deemed unconstitutional on Tuesday, and a loophole in Irish law means that until emergency legislation is signed into law the next day, all banned substances are technically 100% legal. So, for the next 24 hours, this is Ireland:


The legalised drugs include crystal meth, ketamine, benzos, and ecstasy but some objectively fucked-up drug classing means that marijuana is still illegal as it’s grouped with vein-slappers like heroin and cocaine. Hmm.

Regardless, I’d be checking the Instagrams and various feeds of any friends you have in Ireland so you can vicariously enjoy the hedonism because we at ACCLAIM know you wouldn’t just go ahead and enjoy it in your own country when it’s against the law. (psyche, rack one for me will ya?)
