[h3]Drugs tourism: 'it's over' says Roosendaal[/h3]
Tuesday 15 September 2009
The towns of Roosendaal and Bergen op Zoom have made a comedy film to let French and Belgian cannabis smokers know that they can no longer buy drugs over the border in Holland.
The border towns' so-called coffee shops (which sell cannabis) have been ordered to stop selling soft drugs from Wednesday because of the nuisance caused by drugs tourism. Each town has four coffee shops, serving some 25,000 drugs tourists a week.
The film C'est fini follows three Flemish lads attempting to buy a joint in the Netherlands.
Dear Drugs-Forum readers: We are a small non-profit that runs one of the most read drug information & addiction help websites in the world. We serve over 4 million readers per month, and have costs like all popular websites: servers, hosting, licenses and software. To protect our independence we do not run ads. We take no government funds. We run on donations which average $25. If everyone reading this would donate $5 then this fund raiser would be done in an hour.

Your help is most welcome. Thank you.
