What a Sane Drug Policy Looks Like

No, you shouldn’t snort coke off a dirty toilet seat in the middle of Amsterdam. If you do choose to, however, Amsterdam’s public health service would prefer you do so as safely as possible. The “Cocaine Alert” video illustrates the capital city’s pragmatic approach to the dangers of white heroin being mistaken for cocaine. The general attitude being, we know you’re going to do drugs and if you do, here’s how to not die, because we’d prefer you not do that either. 

The idea of a city-wide organization creating a platform that openly provides help where needed is a harsh contrast to drug policies here in the States where the general attitude is not so forgiving.
