    Can Tourists still use Dutch coffee shops.?

    Following a legal change in January 2013 the traditional Dutch Coffee Shops were permitted to ban foreigners from buying cannabis in Coffee shops because of public order. Can foreigners still buy cannabis in Amsterdam after the legal changes?

    After a very Dutch debate on the pros and cons of the plan, the government rewrote the law, leaving it up to each city to decide on the rules. Amsterdam scrapped it, while Maastricht, on the border with Germany and Belgium, left the ban in place and imposed fines on coffee shop owners defying the ban on pot sales to foreigners.
