Netherlands considering marijuana ban for tourists

The Netherlands might ban tourists from visiting coffee shops, which have permission to publicly sell hemp and its produce. The proposal was made by one of the country's political coalitions, the Moscow News Agency reports referring to the Association of Russian Tour Operators.

It is noted that politicians intend to thus get rid of the country’s image as the place where you can take drugs and have fun. Currently, tourists in such establishments are tolerated for fear that they might begin to buy the product of interest from street vendors.

Cannabis trial: Dutch cities picked for cafe supply experiment

Cannabis cafes in the Netherlands are to be supplied legally with drugs from regulated producers as part of a trial aimed at tackling the black market.

Under Dutch law, cannabis can be sold over the counter in licensed coffee shops, but it is currently illegal to produce and supply the drug.

The country's loose policy on cannabis has seen criminal enterprises flourish.

From 2021, cafes in 10 cities will get a legal supply of "quality" cannabis as part of a four-year experiment.

Cultivating cannabis is a contentious issue in the Netherlands, a country famous for its liberal drug laws.

Amsterdam, long known as Europe’s most sinful playground, may be seeing some welcome changes to its antiquated system of coffee-shop regulation very soon.

Although the Netherlands was the first country in the world to regulate the sale of recreational cannabis, it has never created a system to regulate the production of the cannabis that is sold out of coffee shops. Only the production of medical cannabis is regulated, and it’s sold exclusively under prescription, with police typically turning a blind eye to “backdoor” acquisitions of unregulated black-market cannabis products by coffee shops.
