BBC News – Maastricht bans cannabis coffee-shop tourists
I think it’s easy to overstate the number of drug tourists in Maastricht. The cafes are concentrated in a couple of areas (and some have been moved by authorities to the edge of town) and the city doesn’t have an all-pervasive drug culture – certainly much less than some other Dutch cities (including Amsterdam). But the vast majority are German or Belgian, so I’m not sure this ban is really going to make a whole heap of difference.
