I have visited coffeeshops in amsterdam previously. Everyone....I repeat.....EVERYONE! Is on their best behaviour. They are making a problem out of nothing. If this does go ahead, It will SINK their tourism industry. Not a smart move during the biggest financial crisis ever seen, but thats conservatives for ya.

It's not about the behavior of the people that use the drug, it's about the social class of the people and the business interests involved. The US wants us to buy its cancerous tabaco and not grow our own weed in our backyards. Checkout the work of Noam Chomsky for a more detailed analysis.

If youíre a minor please move on this is not for you.

With that being said I wanna know some honest opinions about weed. Should it be legalized? How much do you pay for your marijuana? I wanna hear about what grade marijuana you use (and please donít tell me its Kush, pineapple, Sativa, Boo, Sick, or any other phrases that true coinsures never actually use. Regular, Mid-Grade, and Premium will do just fine)? and the price difference's between grades? If you have any grow, or maintenance tips for marijuana, please share them. Would you be willing to sign a truce with the police department?(What I mean if the police on the county and state level agreed not to prosecute you for the proper use of marijuana would you be willing to help them rid your community of other more harmful drugs, such as meth, and pills.)
