A controversial law that will make it harder for foreign tourists to buy cannabis at the Netherlands' famous coffee shops has been upheld by a Dutch court.

The law, which reverses 40 years of liberal drugs policy in the Netherlands, is targeted at the many foreigners who have come to see the country as a soft drugs paradise and to tackle a rise in crime related to the drug trade.

The law, which goes into force in 3 southern provinces on May 1 before going nationwide next year, means coffee shops can only sell cannabis to registered members.

Was just thinking 'how long before the TSA makes you piss in a cup before you can travel?'

The House Judiciary Committee passed a bill (Oct 2011) that would make it a federal crime for U.S. residents to discuss or plan activities on foreign soil that, if carried out in the U.S., would violate the Controlled Substances Act (CSA) -- even if the planned activities are legal in the countries where they're carried out. The new law, sponsored by Judiciary Committee Chairman Rep. Lamar Smith (R-Texas) allows prosecutors to bring conspiracy charges against anyone who discusses, plans or advises someone else to engage in any activity that violates the CSA

Back in 2006 when JR returned from Amsterdam they searched him thoroughly and raised a few eyebrows at what they found, but didn't waterboard him or anything even though he asked for it. He's a glutton for punishment lmao.gif
