Dutch Government Bans Coffee-Shops From Selling 'Skunk'

Quote:
Coffee shops famous for selling cannabis in the Netherlands will be forced to remove some types of the drug from their stores after new restrictions are brought in.
Due to higher potency levels, the Dutch government is reclassifying some strains of the plant to the same category as hard drugs.
Dutch politicians say the more popular high-strength cannabis, known as 'skunk', is more dangerous than it was before and will have to be removed from coffee-shop shelves.



It is claimed that the amount of the main active chemical in cannabis THC, has gone up, making it far more potent than a generation ago.
The new restrictions will mean that anything containing more than 15% THC will be treated the same way as hard drugs, such as cocaine and ecstasy.
The news has come as a blow to the coffee shop owners as they will have to replace about 80% of their stock with weaker varieties.
Marc Josemans, who runs a cafe in Maastricht, told the BBC that he believes that the new tough approach is being driven by the increasingly influential far-right in Dutch politics.
He said: 'You immediately can taste the difference. Everything which is considered unusual for them - they call it 'left hobbies' and under this name they want to ban all 'left hobbies', like using cannabis,'
The ban on the high-strength 'skunk' is expected to be introduced next year, when police will start doing random checks in the cafes.
From next year, the Dutch government also plans to ban tourists from entering coffee shops across the country.

Re: Dutch Government Bans Coffee-Shops From Selling 'Skunk'

no problems here, and it's only a plan, the law ain't through the parliament yet. also it's very easy to grow weed with a lesser percentage, this would be highly welcomed by the Germans and French since we can transport the better quality to their lands and leave the dutch with the 70's crap weed. I say Ban all skunk immediatly, good for business.

You can buy it on the streets anyway, it's not like they WEED out the strong stuff to reach consumers.

I like to see how tourists fall of their chairs tho. They don't expect the weed to be so strong and can't handle it.
