In recent news, they are considering to restrict Amsterdam coffeeshops that sell cannabis to residents only. That would mean tourist would no longer be able to purchase cannabis at coffeeshops in Amsterdam. This topic has been discussed in the past in the Netherlands and a Weed-pass of some sort is required and has been implemented in some city’s outside of Amsterdam a while back.
The topic of Amsterdam has come back up again because they noticed that many of tourist that visited Amsterdam after the first Lockdown in Spring 2020 came for the cannabis coffeeshops.
They say that they want to attract different types of tourist to Amsterdam. The type that visit museums and not just coming for weed and partying.
They’ve also have been discussing moving the Red Light District out of the city center and into a new twin tower type facility.
