AMSTERDAM (Reuters) – The Dutch government on Friday said it would start banning tourists from buying cannabis from "coffee shops" and impose restrictions on Dutch customers by the end of the year.

 

The Netherlands is well known for having one of Europe's most liberal soft drug policies that has made its cannabis shops a popular tourist attraction, particularly in Amsterdam.

 

Backed by the far-right party of anti-immigrant politician Geert Wilders, the coalition government that came into power last year announced plans to curb drug tourism as part of a nationwide program to promote health and fight crime.

 

"In order to tackle the nuisance and criminality associated with coffee shops and drug trafficking, the open-door policy of coffee shops will end," the Dutch health and justice ministers wrote in a letter to the country's parliament on Friday.

 

Under the new rules, only Dutch residents will be able to sign up as members of cannabis shops.

 

Dutch customers will have to sign up for at least a year's membership and each shop would be expected to have only up to 1,500 members, a justice ministry spokesman said.

 

The policy will roll out in the southern provinces of Limburg, Noord Brabant and Zeeland by the end of the year and the rest of the country next year, the spokesman said.

 

Amsterdam, home to about 220 coffee shops, is already in the process of closing some in its red light district. Some officials have resisted the measures, saying they will push the soft drug trade underground.

 

Some Dutch border towns including Maastricht and Terneuzen have already restricted the sale of marijuana to foreigners.

I've got a nice little "coffe shop" in my living room if anyone ever needs it in New Amsterdam AKA New York.

Just bring a little cash or nice tits and you can smoke.

I was just there about two weeks ago.

 

The prostitutes are great and all, but I really don't see any other reason why anyone would come to Amsterfail other than to get high. The city itself isn't anything spectacular.

 

No offense to any of you perfect English American accent speaking Dutchman out there.

Who gives a shit, Weed isn't hard to get and if I was dutch I wouldn't want all the tourists coming and fucking up my town.

 

They are also clamping down on the Red Light zone.

Point being that that's the driving force behind their economy.

Tourism.

Like dude up there said, why the fuck would anyone want to visit Amsterdam other than to legally smoke weed and bang whores?

That's like Las Vegas banning gambling.

Their economy is doomed.

Get outta here.

 

And I doubt the law will change anything if it passes. If anything, you can get the shit at street prices from the "Coke. X. Heroin." dudes.

Exactly.

I'm sure it's the same as how the right wing gains power in the US though.

Everybody's too busy getting high and banging whores to give a shit about voting, so a vocal minority got their way at the polls.

Pretty stupid idea. That's what was cool about Amsterdam: the liberal drug and Prosti attitudes.

If Amsterdam ends that, they'll be just like Finland.

And the ONLY coll shit about Finland is the NAZI symbol they added to their flag.

:lol: :lol:

 

Relax.

 

A ) That's how democracy works. You want someone to win, vote for them. You want someone to lose, vote against them. You want someone to have a better chance of winning, mobilize a lot of people to vote for them.

 

B ) Obama took office by reaching out to the black vote and the youth vote, two contingencies within the american voting population that are wildly underrepresented.

 

This isn't some right wing satanic trick. Both parties do this and it's how politics work.
