Marijuana coffee shops across the south part of the Netherlands are beginning to enforce a new law banning tourists from imbibing in the legal marijuana the country is famous for. The ruling comes from an attempt to slow the drug-related organized crime that has become prevalent across the country. On January 1, the law will go into action for the entire nation, including the 250 coffee shops in Amsterdam. Signs reading "New Rules, No Drugs" are being put up by authorities on streets, warning foreigners of the law.
