I went to Barcelona (a City that hasn't been ruined by the Brits) and I hated it, the Spanish are a very arrogant lot and very rude to boot, I treat people how I like to be treated and still copped a load of crap off them, I wont ever return even if Spain became the new Holland. _________________ Thankyou for pot smoking!
i have a vape..not a volcano but a natural goods digital model..whip based. i still use my bongs alot nd also skin up on the occasional evening. the best thing about ownng a whip based vape and a glass on glass bong is you can get an adaptor to put in your bong and have a vaporbong. doesn't make much of a diffrence except to those like me who just LOVE taking bong rips.
i very much hope the coffeeshop scene in the netherlands isn't going to fall off. Even if i stop smoking its nice to know that one can fly to amsterdam and secretly toke. Also id like the next gen to be able to enjoy the same Amsterdam that I have been able to.
Personally I think the amsterdam scene will survive and get larger by number of shop visitors. It may not get better but more mass
As the world gets tired of its meth and pills its only natural the herb will have a big up take to its already large numbers.
I also agree other than spain and the West Indies there doesnt seem to be much hope for a large international coffeeshop scene.
I went to the dam with my old man when I was in my early twenties will do the same one day if I have a kid
everyone here is talking about spain, but I dont see any facts that could give me the feeling that coffeeshops could pop up there in time.....you can read about their cannabis-clubs but nothing like the CS in holland where everyone of an age of 18 can go to. or do i only have the wrong information?

Consider that Spain is a Catholic country; I think weed activities will be done very covertly. It would be a big suprise to me if the government ever decriminalised. At the same time, I hear they have much more slack attitudes about airport security, so I expect their enforcement level is not the same as France, for example.
Have never been there, but heard that the Canary Islands are very cool, weed-friendly.
I was not impressed with Barcelona a decade or so ago, except for the churros and chocolate. Found it hard to find a place in the city apart from other people to toke a joint I had brought. I don't "look" Spanish and don't really enjoy being targeted as a tourist, strangers panhandling, haggling with hotels, etc. I like countries with clean toilets on the trains...
There were exceptions, nice people speaking in a friendly manner in a public place occasionally, but the Nederlanders seem to be the most tourist friendly overall population in Western Europe. Still have to mind my behaviour outside Amsterdam--there are other areas which are much more conservative; it is not cool to smoke a joint outside everywhere.
Whatever happened with Switzerland? They had growers and stuff, heard it was liberal some years past, but they seem to have tightened up. Also trop cher, an expensive destination.
