What a shame. I used to like to go to Amsterdam a couple of times a year and relax for a few days. Stay in a nice hotel, eat some nice Dutch food, walk around visiting the tourist attractions, hire a bike, smoke it up at the coffeeshops. In all I'd say I would drop about $3000 a year in Amsterstam itself not counting airfares.

Obviously with these new rules I'm not going there anymore. The money stays in my pocket or gets spent elsewhere. In my view the Netherlands are shooting themselves in the foot.
However it is their foot to shoot. The government has fallen which gives hope but does anyone know what the policy of the likely new coalition? Is there a more liberal freedom minded party likely to gain power?


So in the meantime.... where else? Any suggestions?

there is a right wing wind blowing over Europe , look at France with the national front , its a shame but i don't see things getting any better , the wider public are fed up with extreme liberalism , allot of its immigration , and perceived weak sentences for crimes , human rights laws , i personally i think Europe is ready to implode

Spain has been going strong for a decade now. It's now the PRIMO destination for cannabis tourism. However Spain now has a similar law to the one in the Netherlands, requiring you to join a private club to purchase cannabis.

See, even Arjan cannot pull this one off. And if you think the Dutch Coffeeshops are going to ignore this law, they can try, but they'll probably get shutdown. That is the real intent behind the law, to provide yet another legal pretext for shutting down coffeeshops.

All they'll have to do is walk in to any coffeeshop and check IDs. If there are any non-residents they'll have legal reason to shut down the shop on the spot.

See they were able to shutdown hundreds of coffeeshops over the past decade because they didn't follow the rules...

And all of this is due to the US DEA as usual telling sovereign nations how to run their countries.

Now your statement in you sig line means even more. Now dont get me wrong but I love a beer as much as the next person. But to let alcohol flow easily and cannabis not is just a mystery to me. Not going into the arguement because it is obvious to me which one is the route of more death, crime, abuse, violence...etc.etc.etc.etc...
