Irish Twitter users yesterday dubbed March 10th 'National Yokes Day' as news emerged of a legal loophole which has made some drugs legal for a 48 hour period.
Possession of ecstasy, magic mushrooms, so-called 'head shop' drugs and other new psychoactive drugs will be legal until later today following a decision by the Court of Appeal yesterday morning.

#NationalYokesDay trended first in Cork and then around Ireland as witty Twitter users made jokes about the newly-created loophole.
As emergency legislation was being rushed through the Dáil last night, Irish citizens were having a field day online.
