the Dutch way

Being a foreigner in a country gives you a new perspective of that nation. I thought that the Netherlanders where free spirt and would allow anything. What I learned the past four monthes is that is not the case. They allow anything but they put a limmit to it and think that by that they will manage to control the issue. For example the prostitution is allowed after 10 pm, Marhijuana is allowed in Coffee shops but you frequently meet people smoking on the street and so on. It turnes out that the Dutch way of doing things is not the best! What is the best way then? What they do in Iceland is to forbidd everything and that is not working either!
