Monitor following the developments in coffee shop policy 2015

In-depth study of the monitor that follows the developments after sharpening the coffee shop policy (full text only available in Dutch)

Summary

The monitor consists of three measurements with which the Ministry of Security and Justice wants to map the developments of the coffee shop policy in 2014, 2015 and 2016. During this in-depth study, the authors conducted mid 2016 ethnographic field study in five municipalities. For each municipality one or two hot spots were selected where drug-related nuisance occurs. The selection of these municipalities is based on the results of the first phase and the relevant issues that have emerged therefrom. The following three issues are involved:

  1. upholding the Residence criterion;
  2. displacement;
  3. separation of markets.

The authors investigated these issues based on local developments in coffee shop tourism, soft drugs tourism, soft drug related nuisance and illegal sales outside the coffee shop (by dealers on the streets and drug runners).
