EVER thought of "grazing on grass" at the infamous coffee shops in Holland?
Foreigners will be banned from entering the cannabis-selling coffee shops under new anti-drug laws there.
Under the new rules, only Dutch residents will be allowed to enter the shops, which lawfully sell small amounts of cannabis to customers, the Daily Mail reported.
By the end of the year customers will have to sign up for a one-year membership, or "dope pass", to enter the shops.
The legislation, branded as "tourism suicide", has been spearheaded by conservative politicians convinced that the move will discourage the "wrong" type of visitors.
"We attract other types of tourists apart from drugs tourists," a statement from the Dutch health and justice ministries said.
"This law will put an end to the nuisance and criminality associated with coffee shops and drugs trafficking."
Singaporeans have praised the move as a step in the right direction.
Mr Damien Teo, 19, said: "I have heard of people (here) visiting these coffee shops when they went to Holland. The new laws there will discourage people from Singapore, as well as other countries, from taking drugs."
Another young Singaporean agrees.
Mr Mohd Shaari, 24, said: "By having these new laws, Singaporeans and other tourists will not have an outlet for immoral activities. This move will also help to promote a drug-free world."
