Artist's Description

<b>Soft Drugs</b>

<i>I have to confess, I’m addicted. I’m addicted to chocolate (the street in the front is chocolate). I visited my sis the last week and i ate a half bowl of chocolate she had on her table.
An other example: I got a pack of this little merci chocolate as a thank-you for borrowing something to a friend. This pack didn’t get over a half hour in my hands.
Due to such conditions i stopped to buy chocolate by my own last year (also no more chocolate cream).

Why I thought of making this picture: Our politicians discuss if it’s right to legalize grass (It’s election time and other problems are to difficult for them ;-) ). First i thought no way, this are drugs.But than i thought: What is with alcohol and cigarets? People are also addicted to them. And a few of my friends smoke a little bit grass from time to time. But they do it at home, they don’t drive or get violent.
In the Netherlands you can buy grass in so called coffee-shops. And I didn’t heared that the people there are different from others. After thinking about, I my view is the following: Alcohol and cigarets are also soft drugs. And when the consumption is controlled like in the Netherlands, why not. This people don’t hurt me. They don’t drive drunken and they don’t foul the air I’m breathing.
I can be happy to say: I’m only addicted to chocolate.</i>
