No Weed Pass in Amsterdam!
The weed pass... Most of you probably heard about it already. The weed pass is a legal monstrosity that has been in operation since may 1st 2012 in the South of Holland. Because of the introduction of the weed pass it was impossible for foreigners to visit the coffeeshops over there. The intention was that the weed pass would be introduced on January 1st 2013 throughout Holland (including Amsterdam). However, it became very clear that since the introduction a couple of months ago different cities in the south had a lot of problems with nuisance and crime, all thanks to the weed pass. You see, Dutch people can not take the weed pass. You having to register as a cannabis user? Fuck off... the Dutch say.
The street trade and the number of house dealers with any additional disruption it brings have been increased drastically in recent months. In the past few weeks a new government has formed and the weed pass was a very important subject for them.
Is the weed pass going to be introduced throughout Holland on January 1st 2013? The Answer is Yes and No... After all negotiations the past weeks they have made the decision to stick with the weed pass, but in a slightly different form. But this is the most important thing for you... For Amsterdam an exception will be made!!! (Sorry, only a Dutch link for now) The details are not all known yet, but the Mayor of Amsterdam has been lobbying with the minister of Security and Justice for a year now to spare Amsterdam; Not allowing tourists in the coffeeshops would have a drastic effect for tourists visiting the capital city of Amsterdam. More details will follow, but first we are going to light up a joint to celebrate this. So even after January 1st, 2013... you will be able to keep on scoring a huge bag of White Widow in the famous coffeeshops of Amsterdam. Thank you, Thank you, what a beautiful day... Toke on!
Update: The words from the mayor of Amsterdam were very clear: tourists are allowed to enter a coffeeshop in Amsterdam after January 1, 2013. The Minister of Justice immediately gave a reaction: Hoho, this conclusion from the mayor of Amsterdam is way too premature. No deal has been made (sorry, a Dutch link again for now). So what is it now? Well, damn, those fuckers from the government are unclear. But we are putting our money on the mayor of Amsterdam. Fuck the Weed Pass. It will not go through... (will be continued for sure...)

Quote of the Day
"I don't want to fucking give the United States government one fucking dollar of taxes. I think that they should go to fucking jail for getting you and me and 20 million people getting arrested for pot. It is the safest thing you can do in the universe."
