The newly-elected Dail deputy has said he has no intention of stopping his cultivation of cannabis for his own use.

WE EXPECTED THE new group of independents elected to the 31st Dail to be a colourful bunch.

Luke ‘Ming’ Flanagan, deputy for Roscommon-South Leitrim, is already making his mark by saying that he illegally grows a cannabis plant for his own consumption. He told Fiona Hynes in The Star today that he grows his own so that he doesn’t support the violent drugs trade.

What do you think of Flanagan’s open admission? Should he be growing his own cannabis and smoking it?

Poll Results:

Yes, he's right. (3362)
No, he's wrong. (468)
Don't care. (310)
He shouldn't have admitted it. (237)
