    Looking to go to Dam early December but heard a lot of news floating around that tourists are now banned from smoking weed, or will be banned soon. Can anyone shed any light as to what the official situation with it all is? Basically if i'll actually be able to smoke up if i go in December?!

    Cheers!

    was just reading an update about this in the paper; they are looking into classifying some of the heaver weeds as hard drugs and introducing membership passes for coffeeshops... can you fucking believe that? some states in the US now have a more flexible drug policy than us.
    but realistic thinkers know these plans will turn to shit, and amsterdam certainly will be the last place where these laws will be introduced. if that time comes, hopefully those have already epically failed miserably.

    some say they would flood the block with any drug youd care to mention if it happens. 'poison your streets' as some of them put it. rather sinister turn of phrase really. it wont come to that though, it will fail miserably vertically and horizontally long before anything else happens.

    ^^ There was too much presence of prussian spiked helmets reported around that area..they also didn´t like the belgians around but they couldn´t be identified as easy.

    Surely the Dutch government know how much money they'll eventually lose though. Through tourism and then cleaning up all the extra crime this would create?!

    drugs-related tourism. they want more tourists hot for clogs, cheese and flowers. but the tourism coming in for just getting fucked (physically and mentally) is indeed a considerable amount...
