Let them eat cake

There was some discussion on the radio this morning that Amsterdam's famed cannabis cafés could be on the way out as the Netherlands moves to introduce a smoking ban next month.

This news report confirms that the coffee shops will be affected:

“Coffee shops will be treated in the same manner as other catering businesses. They will be smoke-free,” Prime Minister Jan Peter Balkenende told NOS television.

“It would have been wrong to move towards a smoke-free catering industry and then make an exception for coffee shops. People would not have understood that.”

“Employees should not have to work in an environment were they are constantly exposed to the harmful effects of smoking,” Balkenende said after the cabinet’s decision on Friday.

It has been suggested that customers will still be able to smoke cannabis providing that they do not add tobacco to it. Alternatively, there may well be an increase in the sale of exotic cakes.
The less people take "blow" the better, in any form.

It's unfortunate that so many young people recreationally take cannabis, without fully knowing the effect that it can possibly have on their mental health.

Cannabis is a very dangerous substance
