Asked to comment on the recent legalization of cannabis in Canada, Dutch Prime Minister Mark Rutte told the story of a relative whose marijuana over-consumption had serious mental health consequences.

Even though his own country is seen as a bastion of cannabis use in Europe, Dutch Prime Minister Mark Rutte is categorical: don’t try it.

He offered the advice Thursday during a visit to Canada, just one week after the country legalized the drug.

In the Netherlands the possession, consumption and sale of fewer than five grams of cannabis in special “coffee shops” has been allowed since 1976, and the European country is a long-time favorite destination of those wishing to use the drug.

But for the country’s prime minister, it’s better to keep a distance.

“The best policy on drugs for yourself is no first use. It sounds conservative, but I would urge you: don’t try at all,” Rutte said in an address to Canadian high schoolers, accompanied by Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau.
