Amsterdam is famous for many, many things. Including cannabis-vending coffee shops. Visitors from all over make time to visit the world-famous cafes and smoke up or eat an edible. It’s a great treat for visitors, but maybe, a hassle for locals. The decision-makers in Amsterdam are now contemplating banning all tourists from the cannabis shops out of support for the life of the locals.
The move comes shortly after a survey revealed most youngsters visit the city to try a cannabis cafe. For those living in countries with less lax marijuana laws, especially in Europe, that makes sense. According to a survey of young tourists commissioned by Mayor Femke, more than half claimed they visited the Dutch capital for marijuana.
