Maastricht Mayor Expects Illegal Drug Sales to Increase

Recently the two border towns of Roosendaal and Bergen op Zoom announced that they will close all so-called “coffee shops” where the sale of drugs is allowed.

He appealed to the Minister of Justice to reach a uniform attitude toward drug sales for all of Europe.
