Minister backs out

A couple of weeks ago we reported that the Dutch government wanted to make it illegal to smoke in a coffeeshop: the only public place where it is legal to smoke your pot. But, there is good news.

Our Minister of Health, Hans Hoogervorst has decided to meet the Dutch Royal Catering Industry to work out new regulation.

It is to be expected that the Hoogervorst will let the industry make up its own rules and he will stop interfering. But we have to wait for the definite decision until the end of this year. Keep you updated!
