Dutch Entrepreneurs, Get Ready To Make Some Money

By John Clarke

The Dutch coali­tion gov­ern­ment dis­agree on a great many things — much like our own, I suppose, which saw Nick Clegg go from king­maker to skivvy overnight — but the one thing they do agree on is that coffee shops (just typed “coffeesh0ps” by mistake — force of habit!) are an embar­rass­ment to The Neth­er­lands and should be extirpated.

Cannabis

Since they can’t just get rid of them overnight, their first step is to try and ban the sale of can­nabis to anyone who’s not a Dutch res­ident. This has already happened in a couple of towns near the borders, receiving the green light from the EU Court. The appro­priate EU legis­la­tion con­cerning the “freedom to provide ser­vices” would nor­mally prevent bans on trading with for­eigners, but since can­nabis is an illegal drug, it doesn’t count as regular “goods”, and so falls short of the scope of the law. As such, this means they can do the same across the entire country.

If this ever happens, here’s an idea about how it could easily be exploited: get a Dutch res­ident to buy it for you with a small fee, say €1 a gram.

Then it occurred to me that many places allow smoking, but don’t actu­ally sell weed them­selves. If those places had a couple of guys who offered to go get the weed for the for­eigners for that small fee, they could also give a cut to the estab­lish­ment in return for letting them conduct their busi­ness there.

That sounds like it’d work, right?
