Amsterdam- While the Netherlands gets less tolerant with it's drug policy, other countries introduce a more flexible drug policy. This summer the Global Commission on Drug Policy complimented the Dutch for their pragmatic drug policy. It is totally different now.
Other countries think they can not win the war on drugs and that a solution lies within regulating the production of marijuana. The Rutte-government runs an opposite policy with symbol measures like the Dutch weed pass, the distance criterion and the graduation of the most (strong) cannabis to hard drugs. The Dutch are even outrunned by the United States, although the policies are different in various states.
The Czech Republic is also a country which became more tolerant on their policy regarding drugs for personal use. Since 2010 Czech citizens are allowed to have fifteen grams of marijuana, one gram of cocaine and five XTC-pills in their pockets. Possession of these substances were even removed from the Penal Code, while in the Netherlands possession of drugs is still prohibited.
