Dutch Drug Policy

Time: 5:30 pm

Description:

The Humboldt Institute for Interdisciplinary Marijuana Research (HIIMR) at Humboldt State University will host a lecture on recent developments in Dutch Drug Policy by Sociology and Legal Studies Professor Craig Reinarman of the University of California-Santa Cruz on Monday, March 25 at 5:30 p.m. in the Native American Forum, Room 162, adjoining the Behavioral and Social Sciences building.

Reinarman will discuss the recent cannabis law, the ‘weetpass,’ adopted by the Dutch Parliament and the divergent ways in which various Dutch government authorities have interpreted and enforced it. Some observers interpret the statute as a new ‘get tough’ policy, others claim it leaves intact the world’s most relaxed drug law.

Reinarman has been a visiting professor at the University of Utrecht and the University of Amsterdam. He has also been visiting scholar at the latter’s Center for Drug Research. He is the author of several books, including Crack in America and Cocaine Changes.

The HIIMR conducts interdisciplinary scientific study of marijuana.
