    Background: The United Nations Commissions on narcotics has expressed concern that Government are starting to live with drug addiction and aren't devoting sufficient resources to combat it.

    In Holland, amended drug legislation increases the penalties for hard drug trafficking. But a feature of the new legislation is the removal of penal sanctions against those who use soft drugs in moderation. Australian Broadcasting Commission reporter, Des Power, investigated this aspect at a drug centre, speaking also with a Sociologist and Drugs Counsellor.
