What’s Next After The New Dutch Cannabis Cultivation Bill?

Cultivation In a landmark decision, the Lower House of the Dutch parliament voted last week in favour of adding cannabis cultivation to its famous tolerance policy. A move that would decriminalize the supply aspect of the coffeeshops.

Coffee shops often fall back on supplies from criminal networks.
