The Dutch government will ban the use of nitrous oxide, commonly known as “laughing gas”, amid concerns about the health risks of the growing number of young people who use it.
Ban will go into effect in January and make it illegal to buy, sell or possess the substance, according to the BBC.
However, authorities have said laughing gas can still be used for medical purposes and in the food industry.
The Dutch government hopes that the ban will reduce the number of drug-related traffic accidents.
According to TeamAlert, “laughing gas” caused 1800 accidents in the Netherlands in the last three years.
