Principle agreement about drugs

Before the elections, Geert Wilders of the PVV pointed out “the enormous danger of undermining by organized crime.” According to Pieter Omtzigt’s NSC, this undermining is increasingly directly noticeable in neighborhoods and districts: “bomb attacks on homes, shootings on the streets, the murder of a lawyer and a journalist.” “Everyone realizes that this cannot go on,” said VVD leader Yeşilgöz. “The Netherlands will not become a narco-state,” promised Caroline van der Plas of the BBB. So when the four parties jointly worked on the agreement for the future of Netherlands, we hoped for a serious change in drug policy, with a vision where the business model of these undermining individuals would be shattered at once. But unfortunately, only one rule about drugs made it into the agreement: “It remains prohibited to possess, sell or produce drugs.”
