Don't Bogart That Joint My Friend

In the country where marijuana used to be synonymous with freedom, the Rotterdam city council has voted to shut down 27 so-called coffee shops, where small amounts of cannabis can be bought and sold, because they are too close to schools, Dutch News reported on July 13.

Earlier this year the city decided to shutter all coffee shops within 250-metres walking distance from secondary schools by 2009. The owners will not receive compensation. The Netherlands is notorious for being cannabis-friendly, but there was no reaction from the lovers of the joint on how they felt about the impending ban.

Allowing purchase of marijuana made Amsterdam, especially, attractive to legions of young people and students around the world, as well as those who believe the use of marijuana should not be a criminal act
