I must've lived in one of the only border towns without a Hash Cafe. Sad

(Red and Green lighted House's of ill repute opposite the local militia offices, but not a whiff of drugs anywhere )

That sucks. Im imagining it will affect their tourism a little bit too. Why anyone would go to Holland just to smoke is beyond me but it must be nice to do it while on holiday there. Weed should be legalized and decriminalized everywhere if you ask me. Here in the States and Canada it's tolerated on the West Coast, especially San Francisco and up to Oregon, Washington, British Columbia, etc. but there are still many uptight places.

If it was legal ,and taxed to death like tobacco and drink by the government it would lose it's main attraction (the fact that it's illegal...!!)

Disagree. Beer is legal and that doesnt stop everyone from seeking out a nice cold one on a daily basis :). Legalizing would take out the criminal element involved and stimulate with taxes. Would be cheaper too.

Im sure theres away around it, trust me. Either way, enjoy the country. I knew an ex co worker who went and I asked him where he went, what museums he visited, etc. and he said they spent all their time in the coffee shops. Talk about a waste of time and money, my goodness. Surely, weed shouldnt be the priority when in Holland.

tbh after living there for a while all i can realyl say is... you see kids over here in england smoking it illegally stealing things to get some acting all "hard" because that have some weed... over there its like any other daily thing, there is no big fuss about having it or not, no one cares if you are over there smoking it or not. It will cause more trouble if they ban like it does over here.

They have the smoking ban so you dont even smoke it with Tabacco anymore its a mixture of other things instead.

tbh they will lose millions upon millions if they do... and when i lived over there... i never had the erge to smoke it really because its easy to get hold off so to say... its not like when your with a mate and he has managed to get a joint or two its a rarity over here *cough*

if you get whati mean

If they stop selling cannabis the dutch tourist industry will die overnight, so rest assured, it won't happen. That, of course, doesn't mean there won't be tons of complaining about it.

WEED, the capitol of easy living and smoking the 'special stuff' is trying to shake off the image it has, probably to late.

Lol, you think that's bad, a few months ago, the house attached to ours was raided, rented property, and was a cannabis farm, heat lamps, windows boarded and everything, ripped out nearly 20k in lighting :/

Damn...what a waste Loki! It's practically legal over here in California, its only frowned upon. Ive been caught countless times by the po po smokin a joint, only to have it handed back to me.

I agree with Twizted 100%. This will do WAY more harm than good, especially for the tourism. Half of my friends the only reason the want to go to Holland is to smoke weed in Amsterdam (stupid I know, but that's a majority of people who want to go to Amsterdam).

Tis true, but once the govt gets involved they will tone the weed down so that you need to smoke damn near a whole pack to get a buzz!! Evil or Very Mad

When I was in Afghanistan, a buddy of mine said on one patrol they went on, they crossed a huge field (size of a football field) of weed. Said they were like the size of trees, not the small little plants you see here in America, like 6-8ft tall, with huge trunks.

Heard that Afghan weed is the shiz!!!

...IT IS DAAANK!!! Afghani Goo....HOOOOO WEEEEE gentlemen. BTW, I honestly view weed the same as alcohol, and that's how I treat it. I dont really drink, instead of having a cold one when i get home, i spark one up! I can honestly say that Alcohol is worse for me, as I am not a very happy drunk. I tend to get angry and make stupid decisions. With weed, I dont! The biggest decision I have then is what kind of Cupcake would I like, not whos teeth do I punch in.


If the world smoked weed, we would not have war lol, just gigantic snack cakes.

So I guess my point is
Amsterdam = A Utopian society
