So you mean Amsterdam, right? The city that smells so bad that marijuana smoke smells like freshly baked bread compared to the piss-filled canals? The city which has become so lax and borderline out of control they are reconsidering their stance on the legalization of drugs and prostitution? That city, right? (There are very few countries/cities where drugs are legal, Amsterdam is the most notorious.)
I'm not picking on you, I'm just saying that in a world where drugs can be created and idiots can get their hands on them it's never going to be perfect so to say a city is doing well is relative to how bad things could possibly be. Whenever humans are involved the depth of depravity and misuse has no bounds. So yeah, they're doing well but is it well enough?
