No More Weed for Tourists

Amsterdam without weed?

What is the first thing that most North Americans think of when considering traveling to the Netherlands?

Some people think of tulips, windmills, and bicycles.  These are a mandatory and unavoidable part of the Dutch experience.

Some people think of the famous Red Light District located in one of the most beautiful and oldest parts of Amsterdam.

For the rest of us, we think of the famous coffee shops and the great times to be had within.  Well, it seems the Dutch government no longer wants our tourism money and wants to increase the local crime rate.

On Friday, May 27th, the Dutch government decided to restrict access to cannabis coffee shops so that tourists will no longer be able to enjoy a relaxing smoke break between visiting over priced museums and avoiding rain showers.

    lol this is not necessarily accurate, the dutch government allowed the coffee shops to refuse to sell tourists cannibus, not that they banned them

What do you think?
