DUTCH CELEBRATE POT-SELLING 'COFFEE SHOPS'
December 2, 2002

HAARLEM, Netherlands--The water pipe stood 8 feet tall, encircled by people puffing on its 64 mouthpieces.

Elsewhere in the room, a new machine rolled out 300 marijuana joints in minutes. Free hashish was passed around.

It was the start of the Hash and Weed Festival, which ran over the weekend.

The aging pioneers of the Dutch marijuana culture, watched by hundreds of young aficionados, gathered in a gymnasium to mark the 30th anniversary of the first ''coffee shop'' that openly sold reefers like cups of coffee.

''This celebration honors the world's most successful marijuana experiment: the Dutch coffee shop system,'' said Pete Brady, a writer for Cannabis Culture Magazine.

Holland now has more than 800 ''coffee shops,'' found in 105 of the country's 500 cities and towns.

Angiegirl Yep, in our country it's easier to get stoned than to get a Stones ticket...(screaming in frustration and anticipation, maybe I need to visit my local coffeeshop -3 of them here in my town- to calm down).

I love Holland aka The Netherlands. And not just because of the coffee shops. Great people in a beautiful country. Also, the biggest Stones fantatic country in Europe.
