Sorry, kids! No more lighting up for you. Amsterdam is bringing in the new year with a smoke-free school zone. Just recently, Amsterdam wanted to enforce a potential law banning tourists and foreigners from buying marijuana. This law could’ve been detrimental to Amsterdam’s infamous coffee shops. This is where different types of weed were listed on menus to order, very popular there. But now, after many years of debate & after it has become a huge problem with schools – cannabis will no longer be allowed to be smoked at or around the school zone. Playgrounds (yes, kids smoke there) and schools will be stated as “no toking zones” and anyone who doesn’t take the law seriously will be fined by police. Meanwhile, in America, we have a 6-year-old boy in California smoking for medical reasons and Washington State & Colorado legalizing the use of recreational marijuana in small amounts. Although there is this new rule enforced as of January 1, 2013 in Amsterdam – they are still considered the “cannabis capital” of the world. Biz Baby
