In 1976 the Opium law was changed in the Netherlands. For then on out there’s been a distinction in the Dutch drug law between soft and hard drugs. This also started the policy of tolerance when it comes to coffeeshops (=cannabis shops). Toleration regarding soft drugs means that the sale of soft drugs in coffee shops is a criminal offence but that the Public Prosecution Service does not prosecute coffee shops for this offence. Neither does the Public Prosecution Service prosecute members of the public for possession of small quantities of soft drugs. These quantities are defined as follows: 1) no more than 5 grams of cannabis (marijuana or hash). 2) no more than 5 cannabis plants. During our Amsterdam Drugs Tour (this Saturday) we explain everything about drugs, Dutch culture and Amsterdam’s history.

Because the sale or purchase of large quantities of cannabis is still illegal in the Netherlands, coffeeshops (=cannabis stores) are forced into the underworld to get their supplies. What that means is tens of thousands of euros in cash, trade with shady dealers and there’s always the risk that criminals will take your newly-bought stock of weed from you after you just paid for it. These are the risks coffeeshop owners have to deal with to get some produce to their customers. Shop owners are forced to purchase every other day because they aren’t allowed to have large stocks. If they don’t do this they run the risk of not having any stock for some time. Transaction are always done in cash. 50.000 euro per transaction isn’t out of the ordinary. With these kinds of amounts it’s no surprise that so called ripdeals happen. Shop owners don’t always know exactly where the weed comes from. Some prefer buying from 10 smaller home growers than 2 bad types that can deliver a lot. No matter what you are forced to have to deal with organized crime. Coffeeshop owners would of course rather not. No tax is paid on cannabis in Dutch coffeeshops, while the yearly revenue off all coffeeshops is 1 billion euro.
