    Although I don't smoke and never did I think this kind of sucks. As a European I feel as if some part of my freedom has been taken away.

    I heard this before,
    but I still got my weed yesterday in netherland.

    I think that they still will give weed out, especially the one's near Germanys border.

    //-> by the end of the year.
    Shit :D This is sick wonder why they came to this conclusion.

    +1 I'd assume a large portion of tourism in the Netherlands is primarily for purposes such as obtaining legal weed and the red light district.

    I bet they still sell it to tourists. Its like Alcohol, they dont always ask for id. How would they be able to tell your a tourist? There will probably also be a loophole.

    Yes but you need an id to purchase alcohol to prove that youre above the age limit. Some places ask no matter what, some base their decision on what you look like.

    I think the same will happen with this.

    I am from the Netherlands.

    This card is just a plan, its not here yet.
    I believe they want to start with it in the lower part of the netherlands (zeeland, BRABANT, limburg).

    (Amsterdam is not a part of these provinces lol)

    I wonder how they are going to realise this project...

    A lot of people disagree, and there is a lot of resistance.

    Coffeeshops belong to the Netherlands...

    I also think that our freedom gets taken away.
    Weed is not that bad.

    Whats next?
    Alcohol cards?
    Food cards?
    Oxygen cards?
    (Ok, this is a bit exaggerated haha)

    Anyways, if somebody from BHW comes here and wants some, contact me and I will use my card lol...

    all this means is that weed will be more expensive for tourists. One of the locals will go in the shop, buy the stuff, walk out and sell it to you for a premium. congrats amsterdam....now anyone can be a drug dealer.

    Europe mostly
    I live in the south of Holland 4 km away from the German and Belgian border... and 90% of people who go to coffeeshops are people who make a quick trip across the border. Not many people in NL smoke weed (much less than other countries like the US, UK, etc), and those who do can do so in a safe place with a relatively safe product (no additives added etc...). I don't smoke myself but it seems clear to me that the solution would be to decriminalise it (at least in the EU)...

    Well, Amsterdam just got of the list of places to travel. Not many people are dumb enough do illegal things in other countries. Otherwise, you'll be like the british couple in Duibai. LOL!!

    Believe me, a lot of dutch people smoke, way more then US or UK, im sure about that. (Well maybe not more in numbers, but definately in percentages).

    Dont you think that because you live close to the border, is the reason why you see a lot of drug tourists.

    And you also say that you dont smoke, so you dont really have an idea on what is going on in my opinion...

    Start legalizing, this will automatically decrease criminality.
