To confuse the two narcotics may be fatal. Three people have died and 17 have been seriously ill in the past year after inhaled heroin in Amsterdam. This week three Danish tourists got ill in the town.
Now the police goes out and warn tourists against the potentially deadly drug-trap, the news agency AP writes.
The character Mia Wallace, played by Uma Thurman did this mistake in a legendary scene in the movie "Pulp Fiction."
She begins to bleed from the nose and faints before a desperate Vincent Vega (John Travolta) ends up sticking a huge shot of adrenalin straight into the heart of poor Mia.
The campaign in Amsterdam is aimed at tourists. Huge flashing sign warns that "extremely dangerous cocaine are being sold to tourists." In addition, posters and flyers are in circulation in the city.
Amsterdam is known for its very liberal attitude towards drugs, and many tourists use the city's numerous hashish cafes, known as Coffee shops, where they can buy a joint or a piece of hashish cake, also known as hash brownies and space cakes.
