Marijuana -- Coffee Shops In Holland

You really have to give it up for the Dutch. The masters of the loophole but not the masters of the European Cup in 2008!

European Union law requires that member states put in place legislation that bans tobacco smoking in bars, pubs, and clubs, as well as restaurants. The Dutch have finally gotten around to this and as of 1 July 2008 they will become one of the last member states to put into effect this ban.

However, here is the loophole and the catch. The ban covers tobacco and not marijuana. Therefore, any coffee shop (aka marijuana-selling place) can continue to do what they have always done without breaking the law.

So, blogging colleagues, anyone wanting to make a trip to the Netherlands to explore this loophole, go for it and happy smoking to ya!

I know about the marijuana lolly-pop (remind you of the happy good ol' time when you were a kid? LOL) but never knew about marijuana coffee in the Netherlands.

But if you feel like you are itchin' to try it, pack your bags and go to Aceh since there are tons of Indonesian variations can be found there, such as marijuana sambal, marijuana coffee and so on
