Talk about a buzz kill. A new law may have Amsterdam’s most popular tourist attractions going up in smoke.
The law taking affect at the end of the year makes it illegal for tourists to buy cannabis from coffee shops and puts restrictions on Dutch residents requiring locals to become a member of a coffee shop, before they can toke on any of the establishment’s wacky-tobacky.
The bill backed by the far-right coalition government that came into power last year is part of a nation-wide program to promote health and fight crime.
The city known for hookers and hookahs is promoting healthy living...ha!
This is like Las Vegas outlawing gambling or New Orleans outlawing alcohol.
Sorry Amsterdam, but you’ll always be seen as high, so-so high.
