Applying appropriate law

Whilst the Belgian law on drugs has not been changed, the way it is applied was varied in 1998. Anyone caught by police with a small amount of hashish or marijuana for "personal use" will have to give their name but will not face a fine or prison sentence. While the possession of soft drugs remains illegal, police and courts have put it at the bottom of their list of priorities. Their efforts are going into apprehending and prosecuting suppliers of drugs.
