    Which European country has the least stigma in regards to personal drug use? 
    #1
    This isn't about the legal status necessarily but the social stigma from family, friends, coworkers etc..I live in Ireland and I'd say we're completely backwards. The mention of drugs outside the party scene online (Reddit) or IRL gets massive disapproval. I know that people using drugs shouldn't seek any approval but it seems that a lot of people can be very ignorant and judgmental about using things like benzos or opiates here.

    I've heard that places like Switzerland, Portugal are "more accepting" though there is still stigma but perhaps less than UK/Ireland.

    re least stigma in Europe it's definitely The Netherlands, followed (I'd imagine anyway, given the legal situation) by Portugal

    I'd say the uk, if you define 'drugs' as party drugs and not hard drugs.
    There's a lot of opposition as well to soft drug use in Holland.

    Interesting you say that Arnold, because...

    When it comes to cannabis:

    Just back from an EU road trip holiday via the Newcastle to IJuidden ferry. Netherlands coffee shops even in the most back water of smallest towns are top quality, great choice and super cheap. I was like a kid in sweetie shops. Grams of this, that and the other please. Top quality, great service and soooo cheap. Stigma = nil.

    Netherland is my top favourite. Then again, I'm kinda fed up and passed / over other stuff, so my post is pretty shit really. But yeh, Netherlands - so bloody cool and easy.

    The Stroopwafel are also good btw.
