Priorities Established

If the Fabulous Furry Freak Brothers were a Junta, what country would they be running?

In a move that has left many Netherlanders wondering what the government is smoking, coffee shops are being lumped together with restaurants, bars and cafes, which are being forced to lose the ashtrays. Ironically, customers will still be able to buy hash or pot, roll it and smoke it at more than 700 approved shops. But starting the first of next month, those joints must contain pure marijuana only. People wishing to mix tobacco in, as is the continental custom, must go outside.
And to think that they won’t even respect what’s left of their cultural traditions.

They paved the terroir, and put up a parking lot.
