I didn't know that cannabis was illegal in Belgium and needed legalising.
L'argument du bourgmestre Close est de dire que si la consommation de cannabis était rendue pleinement légale, ses policiers auraient davantage les coudées franches pour s'attaquer aux mafias qui importent les drogues dures depuis l'étranger et se livrent à une guerre sans merci dans la capitale. Il désigne au passage le port d'Anvers, devenu la principale porte d'entrée de la cocaïne en Europe, comme étant à l'origine du trafic qui inonde la capitale. La violence dont font preuve les dealers entre eux serait à la hauteur des sommes en jeu.
 
Comme Liège, Bruxelles-Ville dit avoir choisi de traiter le problème de front en ouvrant récemment une salle de shoot où l'addiction aux drogues est soignée dans la transparence.
Does "salle de shoot" mean here a (legal) bunker for addicts? Do they already exist anywhere in Belgium already? Are they more like clinics, sobering cells or more like underground clubs?

Finland is contemplating clinics rather for hard drugs, where they would pacify the addicts by having a nurse shoot them up with heroin.

Cannabis legalisation in Thailand is going confusingly. Growing weeds became legal, there's no law about trade yet, while public smoking is still illegal.

It is indeed, but of course not quite in the absurd American sense.

I believe that in English it's called a supervised injection site.

I think we just call it addict care, and (addict) treatment centers.

Weird, but it may well make more sense than effectively the reverse situation we have in the Netherlands and to a lesser extent Belgium.
