Safe Mode: On
NO WEEDPASS IN AMSTERDAM FOR THE NEXT 5 YEARS!!!!

This is the translation of a letter sent to the coffeeshop unions in the Netherlands, I am proud to translate this good news....



Dear folks,

The big news today is that the new Tolerance Policy will become active from July 1, 2011, and will be valid until June 30 2015(!). The AHOJG criteria are already avaiable on http://www.openbaarministerie.nl The good news is not much is going to change.

The most important conclusion is that the AHOJG crtieria have not been complemented with the Weedpass and the Distance Criteria. Nothing changes in this area. The announced additions will not be part of the national regulations for coffeeshops. This means that all the evil measurements from The Hague, including weedpass and distance criteria, can only be implemented on a local level. This means the weedpass and the distance criteria will probably not make it in Amsterdam. These announced measurements, that would lead to a coffeeshop wipe-out in Amsterdam, can only be implemented through local legislation by the City Council. The City Council already spoke out against the weedpass and the distance criteria, like the Mayor, who will be held to execute and maintain the new Tolerance rulebook. This is also included in the Opiumlaw art. 31b.

Especially the long term of the new Tolerance regulations stands out, 4 years going! This is a first, and appears to be a signal that The Hague decided that de introduction of the weedpass and the new distance criteria and everything else Justice Minister Opstelten comes up with is to be decided on by individual City Councils. The City Council has toe execute or deny new measurements. The Mayor has to uphold the rules in the end. This means in Amsterdam there will be no mayor changes.

The 5 plant rule stays intact.

I salute you,

MR. Maurice Veldman, Legal rep. for the BCD and THC.

      Get yer facts straight or S. T. F. U. !

      Why does Amsterdam have lower rates of #marijuana use ?
      A Dutch pychiatrist seeks an answer to a question from the Executive Director of UN Office of Drugs and Crime Policy, Antontio-Maria Costa.

      "(If cannabis prohibition and the UN policy works), why does Amsterdam have lower rates of cannabis use than neighboring countries?"

      Will he get his answer?
