Dutch Weed Pass Upheld: Judge Affirms Plan To Ban Foreigners From Buying Pot

huffingtonpost.com (155 hits)

THE HAGUE, Netherlands — A Dutch judge on Friday upheld the government's plan to introduce a "weed pass" to prevent foreigners from buying marijuana in coffee shops in the Netherlands. Amsterdam, whose scores of coffee shops are a major tourism drawcard, opposes the plan, and mayor Eberhard van der Laan says he wants to hammer out a compromise. A lawyer for coffee shop owners said he would file an urgent appeal against the ruling by a judge at The Hague District court that clears the way for the introduction of the pass in southern provinces on May 1. The pass will roll out in the rest of the country – including Amsterdam – next year. It will turn coffee shops into private clubs with membership open only to Dutch residents and limited to 2,000 per shop.
