Rules for drug possession slightly eased

drugs-cocaine-wiet-marihuanaWILLEMSTAD - For those who have a very small amount of drugs with them, for their personal use only, it will be confiscated and they will receive a warning. They will no longer have to appear in court.

This is in a new regulation from the Public Prosecution Service. The easing is not because the Public Prosecution Service finds drug use less serious, but especially to relieve the police and the judiciary.

This involves, among other things, possession of less than half a gram of coke, and up to 25 grams of weed. The complete overview of penalties for drug possession and drug trafficking can be found via the Facebook page of the Public Prosecution Service.
