Q Would the Amsterdam model be a useful government response to hallucinogen and marijuana use in this country Why or why not Amsterdams coffee shops and cafes are notorious for the tolerated exchange of hashish and marijuana This example goes completely against the moral principles underlying the United States drug policy The United States drug policy stands by the zero tolerance rules Our drug culture does not believe in any such thing as a use of an illegal drug only abuse So why arent the Dutch facing as many drug related problems as we are Is a more laissez-faire approach to drugs the answer We arent winning the war on drugs It is clear that the illegal drug use and drug related problems have increased in the United States I think that the Amsterdam model may act a useful government response to hallucinogen and marijuana use in the United States We have tried everything from stricter punishments to spending more dollars on drug prevention programs The anti-drug law has led to the criminalization of more drugs and the imprisonment of more drug users The cost of prohibition of drugs is getting pricier every year Lester Grinspoon and James Bakalar stated The arrest of more than 300000 people a year on marijuana charges contributes the clogging of courts and the overcrowding of prisons Federal state and local governments now spend nearly ten billion dollars a year on drug enforcement and hundreds of millions more to house and feed drug dealers and users in local state and federal prisons80 The drug related problems are increasing rather than decreasing Isnt it time that we searched for a better alternative to fighting the war on drugs I am not saying that legalizing all drugs is the solution I definitely dont believe that legalizing all drugs would work in our society I dont think that our society is mature enough to handle the responsibilities that go along
