In fairness, she does have a point if what she says is true...

Ms Martin described it as a “quite shocking comment” from Mr Coveney as Fine Gael had signed up to this target in government under the Paris Climate Agreement and the EU’s Green Deal plan.

Covid payments might be for a few weeks more .My mate in Carlow says Mc Guinness has the numbers there will be no coalition with the Greens .Expect another general election unless there is a change of mind on a National Government .Bit of Covid cash might buy a few votes .

Leo has shown pretty strong leadership, I guess. I think DM was even singing his praises at one stage. That has to translate to votes. However, I'll be looking for candidates that advocate tax and spend should an election be called.

They also say they want possession of up to 5 grams to be legal.  They also want folks to be allowed to grow 2 plants for personal use. How does this work? You'd want to be a pretty shitty grower to be getting a mere 2.5 grams off a plant. Gobshites.

Can't see it getting into any programme for Govt but it wouldn't necessarily be a bad idea... not sure about home grown, that'd be hard to tax... but then, so is home brew I guess.

They'd still get their tax on the seeds, the soil, the nutrients, the equipment and the power but as you say never gonna happen.

Seeds would be the obvious target but can you not grow from cuttings - excuse my ignorance if that's a silly question, I don't have green fingers.

No or Yes depending on how, or if, one interprets the double negative.

There are two types of cannabis plants. Traditional photoperiods, which only flower after receiving continuous cycles of 12 hours of darkness.  These plants you can take cuttings from, once they are in the vegative and not flowering cycle. The other  more modern types are auto flowering plants which start flowering when they reach maturity, normally after 3 weeks, regardless of the light schedule.  They achieved these types of plants by crossing different strains with strains from siberia and other such places where during summer there is 24 hours of light. The only problem is you cannot take cuttings from auto flowering plants as there life cycle is finite from the day they come up above ground.

That green snot Ryan whats the whole country to get its energy from wind turbines and solar. I hoped he watched Michael Moore's new documentary, planet of the humans its free on youtube and it has pissed the greenies and the left off big time, Michael Moore was a lefty hates trump and has just stabbed them in the back. Plus the media here haven't mentioned or talked about his latest documentary like they did for bowling for columbine and the other big ones he has done, but this latest one not a sound out of them.

The acting minister herself Regina Doherty was on the wireless last week, (think it was Kenny) saying that it depended upon how many jobs the taxi driver was doing as to whether he could claim the money. She said that if he was only doing a few jobs a day where he normally did a lot more then he could get the payment and do those few jobs, whereas if his job number was as normal then he could not
