Reporter on Daily Mail drugs sting bought garden herbs

THE  Irish Daily Mail wants to highlight the ease with which a journalist can buy marijuana:

“THE ease with which illegal drugs can be bought online is revealed today in an Irish Daily Mail undercover operation. Our reporter was able to click on a website, send an email and a short time later, pay a small-time dealer €50 for three grams of marijuana on a busy Dublin street… The illegal substance was then handed over to the gardaí, and full details of the transaction reported to them.”

Un-be-liev-able.

Well, yeah, it was. The Irish Independent:

“Last Monday, the Irish Daily Mail claimed to have paid €50 for three grams of marijuana from a man on a city street… They then handed over the two plastic bags to a gardai at a city station. However…following analysis, the substance was nothing more offensive than kitchen herbs.

Herbs. In Ireland! O’regano…
