Arguing that too many brothels and sex bars are linked to criminality, the authorities plan to all but erase the Red Light District.
Quote:
Amsterdam's mayor, Job Cohen, and his aldermen have demonstrated little nostalgia for the district, which has been the world's most famous home of sexual permissiveness since the 15th century. They first unveiled the plan to close it in December; last month they revoked the licenses of two widely known sex venues, the Casa Rosso and the Banana Bar.

Over the last few years the Netherlands has adopted a stricter policy on selling marijuana, and a ban on hallucinogenic mushrooms is slated to go into effect later this year.

That's just un-Dutch of them! They're gonna BE in Dutch over this one.

Marking Amsterdam off my list of places to visit. Maybe Bangkok.
