300 Arrests in Amsterdam Red Light District

According to DutchNews.nl, there have been about 300 arrests in a crackdown on street drug peddlers and beggars who are widely seen as a nuisance in this touristy city. While soft drugs such as marijuana and hash are decriminalized in Holland, selling drugs on the streets is forbidden. Interestingly, 59 of these arrests involved the sale of fake drugs.
