The dance- and festival scene has grown tremendously all over the world. In the Netherlands especially in and around the city of Amsterdam. More several day events, an increasing number of international visitors an extension of opening hours and more locations with a 24 hour permit. Partygoers can have more days and more hours of fun than ever.
All this is taking place in a time in which developments on the drug market are making it even more necessary to address potential risks in recreational settings.
The close cooperation between all stakeholders (public as well as private) is needed if we want to keep the risks to a minimum.
