Amsterdam- Foreign tourists remain welcome in Amsterdam coffee shops for the time being. This is what Minister Opstelten has said following the decision of the municipality to ban smoking weed from schools. The ban applies to schoolyards of high schools and vocational schools.
Amsterdam has already said several times that tourists should continue to get access. That intention is now honored.
The coalition agreement states that only residents should have access to coffee shops. Nevertheless, it also says that the enforcement of the residency criterion should be consulted with the municipalities, that introduction happens in stages if necessary and that customization will be offered.
