Cannabis is the most widely used illegal drug amongst young people in Ireland, according to a report by the EMCDDA, which provides the EU and its member states with a factual overview of European drug problems and a solid evidence base to support the drugs debate.

The number of deaths from drug overdoses registered in Europe rose for the third consecutive year - by 6 per cent to 8,441 - mainly linked to heroin and other opioids, the report by the European Monitoring Centre for Drugs and Drug Addiction said. They include powerful synthetic opioids that are now also available as liquids and nasal sprays.

Trump Hotels: Campaign has inspired its new chain
The hotels will be owned by a partner, Chawla Hotels, and could open in as soon as seven or eight months , according to Bloomberg. The new venture is a reflection of how the Trump family has approached the presidency: as a way to profit from Trump's politics.

Another major concern of the EMCDDA is that "new psychoactive substances" (drugs or synthetic products) "still represent a considerable challenge to public health in Europe", especially since these products are rapidly becoming "more and more clandestine", especially "in online or illicit markets". At the end of last year, it was monitoring more than 620 new psychoactive drugs that had appeared in recent years.

Ireland ranked in ninth place out of 35 countries in terms of the prevalence of cannabis use amongst young adults; France ranked highest, with 22.8% of 15-34 year olds saying they had used the drug.
