It's every stoners dream to, at some point in their lives, take a nice, long trip to The Netherlands, walk into one of the coffee shops, and smoke a fat blunt for everyone to see free from any paranoia. Now on the other hand, it's every stoners biggest nightmare to wake up one morning, or afternoon, and hear that those Dutch coffee shops are being shut down. And, as much as it breaks my heart to tell you Greenies this, that nightmare is becoming reality. After a month of trying to ban the purchasing of marijuana in coffee shops by tourists, the Dutch government, teaming up with the European Court of Justice this time around, succeeded in closing down Easy Going, one of the fourteen coffee shops in the town of Maastricht.
The European Court of Justice ruled that the mayor of Maastricht -- a southern town near the German and Belgian borders and not far from France -- was right to close down a coffee shop that had been selling cannabis to non-residents.
... the government was committed to the measure, stressing that the so-called " weed pass " will be introduced nationwide and with no exceptions.
