From Radio Netherlands:
France asks Netherlands for drug policy advice
Published: Tuesday 08 July 2008 08:54 UTC

France has asked the Netherlands to help it solve the drug problems
plaguing poor urban districts surrounding major French cities. The request
is remarkable as Paris has always been very negative about Dutch drug
policies. According to the French authorities, drug dealers rule the streets in
some banlieues and police officers are reluctant to patrol the areas.

Dutch Interior Minister Guusje ter Horst says the Paris is very interested to
know how the Dutch deal with inner-city drug problems and has requested
that Dutch drug squads share their expertise with their French colleagues.
