    About Amsterdam smoking ban............

    http://uk.reuters.com/article/oddlyEnoughNews/idUKL0883592820070608?feedType=RSS


    Looks like it will cover coffeshops but....... looks they will be able to build a "box" where people can smoke..... and the only othe difference is that they wont be able to serve you any drinks while your in the "box".... oh well ill just get it myself then.......

    what you will probably find is that they will all build a room where the bar area is outside the room.

    Thats an old article. most likely bollocks by now. it might happen eventually but not that soon i dont think. I dont think we have too much to worry about just yet (I hope..)
    for example, November last year Dutch Government were certain mushrooms would be prohibited by the New year, but they are still available now! (so get your arses to Amsterdam before they do prohibit them!)

    my flatmate went about 6 months ago and this was true. lots of the more commercial coffee shops had "boxes" and others just no tobacco. head outside the city center and it'll be ok tho, i recommend dutch flowers, really local feeling coffe shop.

    Been there, a lot different from all the other places, actually felt like 'just' a coffee shop.....i politley asked if i could wrap one up and was told 'shure shure, go ahead' but it felt wrong skinning up in there as people were reading books and drinking coffee @ 9am...fuckt it i thought and carried on.

    Lost In Amsterdam is a great place....... it serves alcohol so cant sell green, but you can buy your own from other places and smoke in the place whilst you have a beer..... as long as you put no tobacco in!
