Penalties for over-stocking?

Not an application of GSCOP excess-ordering penalties, but a Dutch cannabis shop-owner has been fined 10 million euros for breaking Netherlands drug laws. The Checkpoint coffee shop in Terneuzen which used to serve up to 3,000 customers a day, has been selling ten kilograms of marijuana and hashish per day, vs maximum permitted trading stocks of 500 grams of cannabis at any particular time.

A disappointment for those KAMs wishing to include the coffee-shop in their routine store-check trips (in case of memory-lapse, Terneuzen is close to the Belgian border) well worth the trip for many…

Have a forgetable weekend from the Namnews Team!
