YAC / Conversations / Blog /Protest against Dutch Pot Ban

AMSTERDAM, Netherlands - A policy barring foreign tourists from buying marijuana in the Netherlands goes into effect in parts of the country Tuesday, with a protest planned in the southern city of Maastricht.

Weed is technically illegal in the Netherlands, but it is sold openly in small amounts in designated cafes under the country's famed tolerance policy.

The government has said that as of May 1, only holders of a "weed pass" will be allowed to purchase the drug, and nonresidents aren't eligible.

The policy doesn't go into effect in Amsterdam until next year, and it may never be. The city opposes the idea and the conservative national government collapsed last week.

Shop owners in Maastricht will disobey the policy, and foreign buyers plan a protest there later Tuesday.
