All goes back to the Dutch concept of "gedoogbeleid" - basically, "don't sweat the small stuff."
Drug addicts are treated as being ill, and given medical treatment as such, not criminalized as in so many other countries, It's a strange situation based, like a lot of other Dutch law non-enforcement, on 'tolerance' turning a blind eye or, as the Dutch call it, gedoogbeleid.
Local politics (gedoogbeleid Gemeente Amsterdam) seems to be overruled by broader and more powerfull structures like commercial and state control apparatus (Sepura & C2000)
