Amsterdam Drugport

Amsterdam is an international centre of traffic and trade. It is renowned for its culture and liberal attitude, and attracts tourists from various ages, including young tourists that are attracted by the availability of soft drugs. Soft drugs may be obtained at so-called coffeeshops, and the possession of limited amounts of soft drugs is being tolerated by the authories.

The European Community, however, has expressed their concern that Amsterdam is the centre of an international criminal drug operation. Combining national and international police units, a team is formed to start an exhaustive investigation, under the code name Amsterdam Drugport.
