More interesting (if not disturbing) media press release regarding alcohol:
<< The number of young binge drinkers increased again last year. According to figures released by the observation centre of the Netherlands Pediatric Association 762 young people were admitted to hospital with acute alcohol poisoning in 2011, compared to 684 in 2010 and 297 the year before that. The victims were also unconscious for longer periods – around 3½ hours on average. Pediatricians report that the age of the teenagers they see is decreasing. In 2010 their average age was 15 years 6 months, last year it was down to 15 years and 3 months. >>
So tell me -- how many coffeeshop patrons were admitted for unconciousness in 2010...or at any time? I'm guessing that number would be ZERO /NULL.
