Just a few more days and then it is time again. Saturday, the 30th of July there will be another Legalize! on the Spui in Amsterdam. This annual event is all about a more realistic drug policy and the criminalization of cannabis.
However, this year it will be the first time in the Netherlands that Legalize! and ENCOD (European Coalition for Just and Effective Drug Policies) join hands and organise a Drugs Information Day. There you will get to know everything about cannabis - that is despite of a tolerant soft drugs policy still illegal while alcohol and tobacco are more dangerous and available in nearly every supermarket.
On the Drugs Info Day the following issues will be addressed: What are the consequences if also mushrooms become illegal? Is smoking cannabis really bad for your health? And what will happen with the coffee shops in the future? But also the ignorance when it comes to cannabis seeds and hemp products, which are usually an environment-friendly alternative.
Some speakers and entertainers at the event: August de Loor (Adviesbureau Drugs), Freek Polak (Stichting Drugsbeleid), video artist Micha Klein and DJ 100% Isis.
The 11th Legalize will start at 14.00 and ends at 20.00.
