They've had 30 years to examine this phenomenon and closing 43 shops but allowing permits for growing (previously disallowed) seems like more than a fair tradeoff.
The shops that close may also be able to reopen in a different area away from schools, but that's speculation on my part. Even if they did not, there's still plenty of coffee shops to chose from.
But at least they didn't get hysterical about it.
We should have learned from their GREAT example 30 years ago, but our government is too corrupt.
Imagine if all America pot smokers moved over there. No more pot arrests in this country, they would make it legal in a heartbeat just to get us to come back.
