ANTI SMOKING SIGNS BANNED

Dutch legal experts have told officials in Amsterdam to remove signs banning marijuana smoking. The ‘no toking’ zones were established four years ago to crackdown on young people using cannabis. However the Netherland’s top legal adviser has ruled that the city had no right to establish the zones as smoking marijuana is already theoretically illegal.

Dutch law allows for the possession of a small amount of the drug and it is sold in licensed ‘coffee shops’. Since they were introduced, the ‘no toking’ signs have become collector’s items and were stolen so often that the city opened a merchandise line offering them at around £80 each.

Amsterdam city spokeswoman Iris Reshef said, 'The measures we have taken can remain in place... Just the signs cannot be there.'

Despite this anyone caught smoking cannabis within the ‘zones’ can still be fined!

I think the officials have been smoking it themselves.
