I think you forgot to leave your house. 1 example : pot is a banned
substance in germany. Do you really believe there is not a single german
who has ever used (or still uses) pot germany ? (especially with the 
netherlands so close :)) IMO bans on drugs are silly. They cause quality 
control to be non-existant and they make it harder to teach people 
responsible use of them. People will get hold of them anyway.
