No joint smoking

It's my Spring Break and I'm in Amsterdam doing police research (and visiting friends).

Biking with my brother today, I passed this sign.

This is what you can do if you regulate drugs. This sign was put up because it's an "area deserving special attention" (or something like that). In Amsterdam, this is considered a "bad" part of town. It's not that bad. Compared to "bad" parts of town in America, it's heaven.

And oh yeah, the fine is €50. That's about $80, with the weak dollar.
