#29260 School Crime & Violence - Law and Disorder? Holland's Solution to Illegal Drugs (Run time 15 min.) DVD $69.95

Holland is famous for windmills, tulips, and, since 1976, state-licensed coffee shops where patrons can buy and smoke marijuana.

Statistics bear out the philosophy but many U.S. policymakers remain unconvinced. In its balanced approach, this provocative program challenges viewers to decide for themselves, interviewing both the Dutch Minister of Health, Els Borst, and former director of the White House Office on National Drug Policy, retired General Barry McCaffrey.
