What Would Pim Fortuyn Do?
The Dutch may have destroyed both their tourism industry and their experiment with decriminalizing marijuana with this action
. In the process of the EU countries "harmonizing" their drug laws but allowing each country to decide personal consumption, it has been decided that only Dutch citizens with national identity cards may go to these "coffee" houses, thus removing the very incentive most affluent American tourists have for vacationing in Amsterdam. On the bright side, there's no reason for us Americans to care what adverse impact all of this has on Dutch tax revenues.
