During the last few weeks, there is confusion about whether foreign tourists are or are not allowed to buy weed or hashish in the Netherlands. We would like to answer this question. Where are you welcome and where not?
You are NOT welcome
Since the first of May, a weed pass is needed for 3 southern provinces of the Netherlands. These 3 provinces are: Limburg, Brabant and Zeeland. In these 3 provinces, it is therefore not possible to buy hashish or weed without weed pass, as a foreign tourist.
We have indicated these 3 provinces on the map with the color red.
You are VERY welcome
From May 1st, 2012 until January 1st, 2013, it is thus still possible in the remaining provinces of the Netherlands to visit the coffee shop as a foreign tourist and to purchase smokers’ requisites in the form of marijuana or hashish and to smoke it.
We have indicated these 9 provinces on the map with the color green.
We therefore ask all our visitors and fans to keep visiting Amsterdam and the rest of our beautiful country (Holland) and especially to go to coffee shops so that the Dutch government realizes that entering a weed pass (which discriminates against tourists) makes no sense.
We are brainstorming to get to a solution to the weed pass problem. Of course, the best scenario is that the weed pass is completely abolished. But if this is not the case, there MUST be a legitimate and unique Dutch way to allow foreign tourists to smoke their joint in a relaxed way.
