*sigh* it was only a matter of time I suppose. It's one of the few things anyone thinks they know about Holland, along with prostitution. But since
you asked, here is what I do know about drug use in the Netherlands. I've only even seen coc aine in my life once (I've lived here 20 years). I
was at a small, local music festival (100 people) and this 16 year old kid walked in, sat down on the grass, pulled out a mirror and "did the
thing". He was deliberately being deliberate about it, showing off, if you will. It looked so silly it was almost comical and imho he made a fool of
himself. I would assume it was coc aine because that's what I've seen in the movies.
I've been offered (and refused) it once on the streets of Amsterdam almost 20 years ago when things were a lot freer and drug sellers stood in a line
for tourists coming from the Amsterdam Centraal Station (Central Station) on their way into the city, offering any drug you could think of and
possibly a few you couldn't. Thankfully, those days are long gone.
As for statistics, I can't be bothered to go fish these up for you but I can guarantee you will see that the USA has more of a drug problem than
Holland any day of the week. All drugs here are illegal despite any impressions you may have to the contrary, but, like the USA, they are as easily
available too, just like most western countries. You can thank the illegal and government black projects for that though. Hope I cleared up a few
misconceptions for you. And now back to the subject of the thread....
