drugs are not free in Holland. Pot is legal to buy in places, hard-drugs are illegal.
It's not working for the Dutch that well. It still is only legal in certain spots. Most of my Dutch friends don't smoke pot and some of them never even tried. Some cities are banning pot (actually hash)-cafes because of increased illegal and criminal activity.
Heroin users are steered to free methadone clinics.
I would say that the situation is better than the US but not close to ideal. Of course, the dutch are much more liberal that the US which is largely non-tolerant: The dutch will mostly help their citizens, the US will mostly jail their citizens.
