En Coffee Shop i Berlin

Klaus Trier Tuxen fra Hampepartiet er taget til Tysklands hovedstad Berlin i Oktober 2013, for at finde ud af noget med den Coffee Shop der snart kommer i bydelen Kreuzberg. Først tager han til Görlitzer Park hvor der sælges cannabis. Her snakker han med en der arbejder tæt på parken, og han fortæller at der er meget vold i parken. Han opsøger bydelens borgmester Monika Herrmann (Fra “De Grønne”) men hun har ikke tid til at tale med ham. Men så snakker han med nogle Berlinere der nyder cannabis og hører hvad de har at sige om det. Så ser han Hanf Museum Berlin som er et fedt hampe museum i Mühlendam tæt ved Alexander Platz. En måned efter han er kommet hjem læser han at nu skal Coffee Shoppen komme snart, det er vedtaget af byrådet i Kreuzberg og den skal ligge i Görlitzer Park.

Tuxen meets Nol van Schaik

Klaus Trier Tuxen from Hampepartiet (The Danish Hemp Party) meets Nol van Schaik. Nol is the owner of two Coffee Shops in Haarlem, a city outside Amsterdam in Holland. Nol teels how things a getting worser in Holland, for people who loves cannabis. He tells about the dutch goverment who have made a “Weedpass” in the southern provinces of Holland, for the people who buy cannabis in the Coffee Shops. Those provinces are now called the “Weedpass zone”. It only dutch people who can get it, foreigners are not allowed to buy cannabis anymore. The weed pass is now in the southern provinces of Holland, and soon they will also be in the northern provinces. The result is a big chaoutic mess, dutchpeopel who buy cannabis dont like to be registrered, so they travel to to Coffee Shops outside the Weedpass zone. Haarlem is luckely still outside the Weedpass zone, and the city is having problems because of the many dutch people who comes from the Weedpass zone. In the interview we also hear about how things started back in 1973, when the first Coffee Shops came up in Holland, and why it was legalized there. In the end of the interview Nol tells that he now live in Spain, because he is so tired of the way things are in Holland now. Spain is the new place for people who loves cannabis, and thats why you find him there. The interview was made 02.07.2012 in Copenhagen.
