Nederlander Police Raid Cannabis Cup 2011

dutch police

In the World Cup, towards the Stanley Cup, towards the Ultimate Goal, cups have loved a dominant role in history.  Most are presented towards the victorious within an honorable and ceremonious manor.  Using the 24th Annual High Occasions Cannabis Cup now, participants from around the globe were wishing for any fun competition.

Unlike the upbeat vibe associated the prior occasions, the atmosphere was tossed off target when a large number of police demonstrated to conduct a raid.  The big event was split up and all sorts of participants were needed to depart.  High Times’ site reported on Wednesday (11/23) the event would resume.  The website also continued to state that reviews indicated there is a quarrel on the permit application.  There has been no updates since, therefore we not able to verify when the event began support.

While there’s been a change in Nederlander lawmaker’s sentiment on marijuana enforcement, the very first raid within the event’s 24 year history is surprising.  The Cannabis Cup in Amsterdam seems to possess bumpy road later on too.  New laws and regulations are going to result in the purchase of marijuana within the Netherlands illegal to non Nederlander people.  This appears basically assured to place the event’s worldwide appeal in serious risk.

Even though the cup may face some uncertainty in Amsterdam, the big event will certainly survive.  Location isn’t likely to derail the large worldwide enthusiasm produced in the Cannabis Cup.  A town somewhere would like for hosting the affair and reap the economical advantages of vacationers.  Even when the big event remains in Amsterdam, format changes may have the ability to keep your spirit from the Cannabis Cup intact.  Furthermore, political actions frequently are available in waves.  If reduced tourism is caused by the brand new marijuana laws and regulations, it could actually come with an adverse impact on a previously slowing down Nederlander economy.  Momentum could swing rapidly toward rebuilding the cup’s tradition.
