Never, not once in my life, did I think I would find something that I could agree with 5Cats on.

But I just did.

Good sir, I will give you an internet handshake for that one.

I'd like to weigh in on this as a person with Dutch nationality (from their colonies) who lived through out the Netherlands for 15 years.

Fox news is right to point out Holland is indeed a mess. But its not because of the pot and prostitution laws, those are a minor facet of life there. (Disclosure: I am a dedicated weed consumer myself, and grower.)

Holland is, IMO, like Soviet empire or the Nazi empire. (Not many native Dutch people feel this way cause they are used to it.) Every aspect of your life and exitence is regulatd and controlled by the goverment. The amount of time you spend interacting with the goverment, avoiding fines, paying fines, and the like is immesureable. The goverment there is all powerfull. Even their social policies are another way to concentrate more power & money in the goverment. The citizen is simply a cog in the machine. And the cogs are less rebelious when stoned and satiated.

PS> Holland has the worst youth alcoholism +

It's still a growing problem there, even if the crime rate is lower than the US, Thus why they are closing so many `coffee shops`.

We`ll see what time will unfold.

Technically marijuana IS illegal in Holland, but as their policy goes, if they can`t ban they regulate. Seeing as they`re trying to enforce the ban by shutting down the dealers who AREN`T going invest that income in guns so again the coffee shops turn to the black market.

Large enough for the cartels to control Mexico apparently.
