Dutch Coffeeshop Update...Amsterdam Allows Foreigners...

Jump to last reply

Recently it came up on another thread that someone thought the ban on foreigners patronzing Holland's coffeeshops, where cannabis is sold over the counter, was in effect and only local inhabitants of a community could do so.

But apparently not so from Amsterdam Info:

http://www.amsterdam.info/coffee-shop-news/

which includes:
December 12, 2012 News:
No restrictions for visitors in Amsterdam
The mayor of Amsterdam Eberhard van der Laan confirmed in his letter that a certificate of residence issued by city municipality will not be required to enter the coffee shops in Amsterdam.
The mayor underlined that while one third of six to eight million tourists arriving to Amsterdam each year visits the coffee shops, these visitors do not create any disturbance in the life of the city, while limitations on sale of the cannabis to foreigners might create illegal street trade and be a cause for growth of criminality. At the same time, a strict ban on smoking marijuana in schools and schoolyards has been reaffirmed by the Mayor set to take effect on January 1, 2013.>

What jumped out to me was that 1/3 of the 6-8 million tourists a year who visit Amsterdam go to coffeeshops at least once. Enough said - the economic impact would be so huge - some of those tourists not even coming - that I think it will be safe to say Amsterdam's unique (for Europe not Colorado!) will be open to foreign tourists for the near future - it looks like other localities may decide different.

ANYONE HAVE A CURRENT RUN-DOWN OF THE ACTUAL POLICY?
