Dutch Talk-Show Host to Take Heroin on Air

Dutch Talk-Show Host Plans to Take Heroin on the Air, Causing Stir Even in Liberal Netherlands

AMSTERDAM, Netherlands (AP) - The host of a new Dutch talk show plans to take heroin and other illegal drugs on air in a program intended to reach young audiences on topics that touch their lives, producers said Wednesday.

The show, scheduled to premier on late-night television Oct. 10, is called "Spuiten & Slikken," or the "Shoot Up and Swallow" show.

Even in the liberal Netherlands, where marijuana is sold and used openly, the proposed action by presenter Filemon Wesselink is illegal, and the idea was met with dismay by the ruling center-right Christian Democrat party.

"This is dangerous, and it sets a bad example," said party spokesman Pieter Heerma. "We're going to ask the Justice Minister for his view on what the law says about this, and his view on the dangers and risks involved."

Justice Ministry spokesman Ivo Hommes said it wasn't immediately clear whether Wesselink would be prosecuted: possession of any amount of heroin is illegal but in practice police usually don't have resources to chase after people with less than a half a gram.

"The actual taking of drugs is a health problem, not a criminal act, though it's obviously hard to take drugs without possessing them first," Hommes said. "In any case it's not something we endorse, and doing it on television is undesirable."

The Shoot Up & Swallow show's main hostess will interview guests about drug use and abuse, while Wesselink and another presenter will carry out in-the-field experiments with sex and drugs.

Wesselink, 26, plans to ingest heroin in the form of a pill, said Ingrid Timmer, a spokeswoman for the show's producer BNN.

"It's not our intention to create an outcry. We just want to talk about subjects that are part of young people's lives," Timmer said.

In other segments of the show, Wesselink plans to go on a drinking binge in a series of pubs. He also will try LSD on his couch under the supervision of his mother.

The Netherlands is known for its marijuana policy, where sale and use of the drug in small quantities are not prosecuted even though technically illegal. Other drugs, including LSD, cocaine, Ecstasy and heroin are outlawed and dealers are prosecuted. The legal age for the consumption of alcohol and tobacco is 16.

you can take it orally, but it will take higher dose to get the same high because most of the chemicals break down into morphine from your stomache acids.

Sounds like a great way to give young people less respects for heroin, drinking and LSD...and a great way to give anti-drug crusaders more leverage against idiotic drugs use. But hey, every thing is allowed, this is the postmodern society.

"I had someone at the Houston police station shoot me with heroin so I could do a story about it. The experience was a special kind of hell. I came out understanding full well how one could be addicted to 'smack,' and quickly." - Dan Rather in Ladies' Home Journal, July 1980 edition.

In another AP reporting of this story, it says the heroin will be smoked not ingested.

Quote:

For one episode, Wesselink, 26, plans to smoke heroin, said Ingrid Timmer, spokeswoman for the show's producer, BNN.




Actually this is not without precedent. Dan Rather, the CBS Evening News reporter, said in the Ladies' Home Journal, July 1980 edition:

Quote:

In 1955 or '56, I had someone at the Houston police station shoot me with heroin so I could do a story about it. The experience was a special kind of hell. I came out understanding full well how one could be addicted to 'smack,' and quickly.

Dutch Reporter To Take Drugs On TV

September 22, 2005 11:01 a.m. EST

Hector Duarte Jr. - All Headline News Staff Reporter

Amsterdam, Netherlands (AHN) - Talk about gonzo journalism. Producers say a field reporter for a Dutch television talk show plans to use heroin and other illegal drugs on the air during a weekly program on issues concerning young people.

"Shoot Up and Swallow," which is scheduled to premiere as a late-night show Oct. 10, has sparked an outcry in the infamously liberal Netherlands, where marijuana is sold and used openly. The proposed drug use by reporter Filemon Wesselink, however, is illegal.

Justice Ministry spokesman Ivo Hommes says it is not immediately clear whether Wesselink could be prosecuted. Possession of any amount of heroin is illegal, but, generally, police do not arrest anyone carrying less than half a gram.

The show's in-studio host, Sophie Hilbrand, will interview guests about drug use and abuse, while Wesselink appears in segments experimenting with drugs and liquor.

Ingrid Timmer, spokeswoman for the show's producer, BNN, says Wesselink, 26, plans to smoke heroin for one episode. For others, he plans to go on a drinking binge in a series of pubs. Later, he will take the hallucinogenic drug LSD on his couch under the supervision of his mother.

BNN has drawn criticism for previous shows, including one featuring a segment on how to have sex in a nightclub.
