Since 1999, measurements have taken place on an annual basis regarding the number of coffee shops in the Netherlands and the municipal policy with respect to this issue. In 2002, the Minister of Justice promised to also examine aspects of enforcement and compliance as part of the study. The study is important in ensuring the ability to monitor developments with regard to coffee shops and to gain an insight into local policy, including those areas in which bottlenecks and problems have arisen. The study forms part of the National Drug Monitor.
