[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.
