Coalition Parties Divided on Municipal Cannabis Nursery

The Christian Democrats and Christian Union government parties oppose the experiment proposed by municipalities to have the town of Eindhoven start its own cannabis nursery. The third coalition partner, Labor, says that, since 30 mayors of different political affiliation support the experiment, this should be taken into consideration. The municipalities had also proposed that only Dutchmen could buy soft drugs in “coffee shops.” Christian Democrat parliamentarian Cisco Joldersma says that it is legally unclear whether access to foreigners can be forbidden.
