Yes I can only echo BR067's post- Maastricht isn't exactly the place you would be going anyway if you are looking for a "good time" at the coffee shops....
Well, as a local I from nearby Maastricht I can agree with above.
I support this act, why?? Very simple. Many countries are against our drug policy. Especially our neighbours Germany and Belgium. And many people are able to benefit from our policy by simply crossing the border and stock-up their drug supply. I don't us to face losing this unique policy due to international conflicts.
We are not talking about tourists in Amsterdam who like to try a joint, but normal consumers. To preserve the soft-drug climate in the Netherlands I think it's a good idea to legalize soft drugs to Dutch people only in border area's. This way cities like Heerlen, Maastricht, Venlo aren't invaded by drug-tourism.
