New High for Irish Creativity

Today I read about the Irish Entrepreneurial spirit whereby a local organisation with prisoners welfare at heart have been experimenting with delivering directly to prisoners in a Dublin prison. Think of the savings, no requirement to have items scanned, recorded, paperwork, checking, and all that takes up so much time of prison officers valuable time, just a directly delivery via quadcopter of some recreational drugs ( nothing heavy – naturally – as this quadcopter has limits to what it can carry).
