Default Drugs Law In Your Country

Hello i am from the Netherlands, and my question is how do you think about the drugs law in your country ? As i may speak for my self and proberly also for many other Dutch people, than i would say we have a pretty good law. Not to hard but also not to kind. Just keeping it real. Our goverment knows thats the problem is there but if you cant win the fight than look for a way for understand it and try to solve it.

Why is this is in this forum?
I am actually pretty apathetic to the drugs laws in Australia. As to drug laws in general, I think some should be abolished not, as Wannabe said because we should be able to exercise our own will, but becasue a lot of people are drawn to drugs simply because they are illegal. People want to taste the forbidden fruit.
I'm in South Australia which has the most lenient stand on cannabis, where possesion and cultivation of minor crops has been decriminalised. Which, I suppose is good...

Criminalising things just ensures that they will become the domain of black market trafficers, resulting in a lack of safety (e.g. impure, cut or poorly synthesised drugs), control (addiction and associated crimes become rife), poor education (myth and misunderstanding abound) and jails full of otherwise harmless people (pot smokers ending up unemployable due to a criminal record, lack of jail space foor truly dangerous people etc.)

Drug control needs to come from education and treatment not criminalisation. If those who fall into abuse and addiction cycles are helped, those who are curious are educated and given a safe environment in which to experiment and the drugs that are actually relatively safe when made legally under controlled conditions hence are pure, uncut or well synthesised are available then i see no reason why it is not possible to have alternatives to locking people up for what are generally symptoms of curiosity, miseducation, mental illness or difficult social circumstances, not a crime that deserves imprisonment.

we need to treat the problems where they exist not punish the innocent for being victims of a system that creates further problems.

(note: i do believe that there should be some degree of laws to ensure that people who have the misfortune to fall foul of addictions to heroin, crack, meth etc. can recieve the same help and safeguards that alcoholics recieve in the more sensible countries these days.)

Here in Belgium drugs law is hard.
But still Belgium is a small country with a huge traffic line of drugs: extasy, cocaine, speed, weed.

Well here in Poland its totally forbidden. But law here lives own life Everyone can take and buy drags very easily in school, cause someone knows somebody who has them.. like a big black market, so it's Your free choice. Of course its other history when police will catch You but I heard that Youre not going to the jail if You will tell them who was Your drug dealer. Anyway the biggest problem here is alcohol not drugs so I don't know too much about it

Wassup???

I love to blaze ... I consider it my most pleasurable right in the free world. As a consumer of the herbal product only, I am never really concerned with the law anywhere cos I always make sure I score my stash in the safest manner possible and it's ALWAYS through a connection. At any point of time I will never be in a public place with more than 2 - 3 spliffs with me concealed very appropreately cos I've got all the paraphernelia, especially when I'm travelling in another country. I respect the law and only bend it ever-so-slightly to suit my personal convenience. Even if it's found, I am sure enough of being able to talk my way out of that situation ... as I have many times in the past!!!

Having said that, the laws are pretty strict for dealers (of THC-based products) and DEADLY strict for dealers as well as consumers of chemical narcotics in my country : India!!!
