荷蘭將從1月起禁止使用笑氣

荷蘭政府正在禁止使用一氧化二氮(俗稱笑氣),因為人們擔心越來越多的年輕人使用這種氣體會帶來健康風險。

然而,當局表示,它仍然可以用於醫療目的和食品工業。

近年來,這種流行的合法興奮劑在俱樂部成員和節日遊客中越來越受歡迎,並且經常與其他藥物如搖頭丸(MDMA)或氯胺酮結合使用。

這種氣體大多以小金屬罐的形式出售,在吸入前被倒入氣球。

但人們對這種抑鬱症類型的藥物對大腦和身體反應的影響表示嚴重關切。經常大量使用還可能導致維生素的缺乏,從而造成永久性的神經損傷和持久的癱瘓。

"衛生、福利和體育國務秘書Maarten van Ooijen在宣布政府決定時說:"娛樂性使用一氧化二氮會導致巨大的健康風險。

司法部長Dilan Yeşilgöz說,該禁令將使警方在發現有人在其車輛中攜帶氧化亞氮氣體罐時能夠立即採取行動。

由於可以合法地購買和出售用於製作鮮奶油的一氧化二氮,它已被廣泛而容易地用於娛樂用途。


The Dutch government is banning the use of nitrous oxide, commonly known as laughing gas, amid concerns over the health risks for the growing number of young people using it.

However, the authorities say it can still be used for medicinal purposes and in the food industry.

The popular legal high has grown in popularity amongst clubbers and festival-goers in recent years, and is often used in combination with other drugs like MDMA (ecstasy) or ketamine.

The gas is mostly sold in small metal canisters, which are emptied into balloons before it is inhaled.

But there are serious concerns about the impact the depressant-type drug has on the brain and the body's response. Heavy regular use can also lead to a vitamin deficiency that can cause permanent nerve damage and lasting paralysis.

"The recreational use of nitrous oxide leads to enormous health risks," State Secretary for Health, Welfare and Sport Maarten van Ooijen said, as the government decision was announced.

Justice Minister Dilan Yeşilgöz said the ban would enable the police to take immediate action if they found someone with nitrous oxide gas canisters in their vehicle.

It has become widely and easily available for recreational use, as it can be legally bought and sold for the purpose of making whipped cream.
