Dutch Govt Plan To Let Only Locals In Marijuana Shops May Backfire

Amsterdam, Netherlands (AHN) - A new plan by the Dutch government to issue special passes only for locals to enter neighborhood shops that allow smoking of marijuana is drawing criticism as encouraging more crime by visiting foreign marijuana users.

Tilburg University researcher Nicole Maalsté sees no positive effect on the government's plan of issuing nationwide special passes to a select few, preferably Dutch locals, to enter coffee shops where marijuana is legally consumed.

The Netherlands has been experiencing drug and marijuana related crimes by tourists who patronize these coffee shops, as coffee shop owners now get most of their marijuana supply from organized crime sources.

Dutch police have conducted a series of raids on Dutch residents who privately grow their own marijuana. This kind is considered by many to be organically "safe" and free of additives.

Maalsté also criticized the measure as promoting the spread of large-scale and "unsafe" marijuana to be sold in the coffee shops, which are largely patronized by tourists who are reported to later commit drug related crimes and violence.

With the proposal to issue special passes, Maalsté expects tourists to instead buy their marijuana from the streets. She also expected few Dutch locals would come forward and be publicly registered as an official marijuana user.

Meanwhile, the European court of justice will rule on Dec. 16 whether it is legal under EU law to ban foreigners from entering Dutch marijuana shops.

SNOOP DOGG NOT HAPPY ABOUT WILLIE NELSON'S WEED BUST

Category: Culture | Posted on Mon, December, 6th 2010 by THCFinder
Snoop Dogg is no stranger to touting his love for marijuana, and he's not pleased that his weed-toking buddy, Willie Nelson was pinched for possessing the green stuff. The Doggfather recently spoke on the country legend's arrest after border patrol at Sierra Blanca, Texas detained him for possessing six ounces of the sticky icky.

"They better leave Willie the f--- alone!" a heated Snoop told TMZ. "Willie Nelson is a legend, man. Really, sometimes you gotta back off certain people and have a certain amount of respect for your elders. Willie Nelson is our elder. He's somebody who lived through many decades of music and hard times and whatnot and living good and going up and down. So give him that respect."

The Cali rapper continued his tirade by going after the police officer who put him behind bars. 'Who's the motherf---er that arrested him? I want to know who's the police officer that said 'You're under arrest. You've got a right to remain silent.' You dumb motherf--ker, you. You stupid motherf---er you. What you think you going to gain by arresting Willie Nelson? He got out and he back smoking right now!"

Snoop collaborated with his toke buddy on 'My Medicine,' a track dedicated to pot that was included on his 2008 album 'Ego Trippin'.' He capped his diatribe by cementing his love for Nelson and issuing a warning: "If you got a problem with Willie Nelson, you got a problem with me!"
