The opposition parties D66 and SP are critical of the plan and actually support the testing of ecstasy at raves to guarantee a pure product. This proposal was not supported by the coalition.Here is the Dutch article.
The article doesn't mention what the spray is called. I found this online.
I think it's the responsibility of the parents to use this spray, not of the government and schools.
Say goodbye to our free country.

We have 1 GB free there so you can all use it! If you know how to use FTP you can just make your own folder on the server. If you don't know how to use FTP you are a fucking n00b and should be killed (read: UTFSE!)

The Big Mac Index is presumably useful because it is based on a well-known good whose final price, easily tracked in many countries, includes input costs from a wide range of sectors in the local economy, such as agricultural commodities (beef, bread, lettuce, tomatoes), labor (blue and white collar), advertising, rent and real estate costs, transportation, etc.
More on: Wikipedia, The Economist(including the index) and NRC Handelsblad (Dutch)
However, after a quick search, I discovered a webpage which told me Big Mac's aren't equal in different countries. Still, in my opinion, I belief the Big Mac index has it's purpose: It's making perfectly clear whether McDonalds is overpricing somewhere.

One of the first to incur the wrath of the newly muscular FCC, U2 singer Bono was censured by the FCC for his use of the F-word when accepting a Golden Globe award in 2003. The initial FCC ruling was that his use of the offending word (”This is really, really, fucking brilliant!”) was merely crude and offensive. However, it was amended over a year later in light of the Nipplegate incident, when all use of the F-word was forbidden.
Nervousness about the use of the F-word and the threat of sanction from the FCC reached an apotheosis when 66 local stations dropped plans to show Steven Spielberg’s second world war drama because of its explicit language.
The FCC launched an investigation into complaints of indecency - ie, partial nudity - in NBC’s coverage of the opening ceremony of the 2004 Athens Olympics.
American public television network PBS is censoring BBC drama documentary Dirty War. PBS said it would cut scenes featuring a naked woman being decontaminated in a shower, in the film that centres on the aftermath of a dirty bomb attack on London.Click the title for the entire list, it's a little dated ('05) but it gives you the general idea.
