A picture believed to be one of only two surviving photographs of artist Vincent Van Gogh is in fact a picture of his brother Theo, the Van Gogh museum in Amsterdam says. The black and white image had long been thought to show Vincent at the age of 13, and has featured in biographies of the notoriously camera-shy artist behind “Sunflowers” and a series of self-portraits.

Q & A / Live interview Ed Rosenthal (cannabis Legend!), Cannabis University 2018

Anyone who has ever grown cannabis is indebted to Ed Rosenthal, The Guru or Ganja. Whole generations of breeders gained their first knowledge from his books and his column ‘Ask Ed’, which not only appeared in High Times, but also in countless European magazines. And Rosenthal inspired Ben Dronkers to open the Hash, Marihuana & Hemp Museum in Amsterdam and is a lecturer at Oaksterdam University in California. He is generally regarded as the worldwide authority in the field of cannabis breeding. We are honored that Ed Rosenthal is coming to Amsterdam to celebrate the ten-year jubilee of Cannabis Liberation Day.
Iedereen die ooit cannabis heeft gekweekt is schatplichtig aan Ed Rosenthal, The Guru of Ganja. Hele generaties kwekers deden hun eerste kennis op uit zijn boeken en zijn column ‘Ask Ed’, die niet alleen in High Times verscheen, maar ook in talloze Europese tijdschriften. En Rosenthal inspireerde Ben Dronkers om in Amsterdam het Hash, Marihuana & Hemp Museum te openen en is docent aan de Oaksterdam University in Californië. Hij wordt algemeen beschouwd als dé wereldwijde autoriteit op het gebied van cannabis kweken. We zijn vereerd dat Ed Rosenthal naar Amsterdam komt om het tienjarig jubileum van Cannabis Bevrijdingsdag mee te vieren.

05 Panel debat – Cannabis reguleren, maar hoe?

John en Inez Meijers (modelkwekers), Bart Vollenberg (cannabis connect), August de Loor ( Adviesburo Drugs), Peter Hendriks (Avites)

Peter Hendriks
In relative silence, Peter Hendriks has been building a small coffeeshop empire in Limburg since the 1980s. His four coffeeshops in Sittard and Roermond are an example for the branch. In 2017 he founded Avites, Alliance of Integer Shops and Growers, who strives to ‘recruit as many cooperators as possible in the coffee shop branch and to jointly resolve the back door problem’.
In relatieve stilte bouwde Peter Hendriks sinds de jaren tachtig een klein coffeeshop imperium op in Limburg. Zijn vier coffeeshops in Sittard en Roermond zijn een visitekaartje voor de branche. In 2017 richtte hij Avites op, Alliantie Van Integere Shops En Telers, die er naar streeft ‘als coöperatie zoveel mogelijk leden in de coffeeshopbranche te werven en gezamenlijk tot een oplossing voor de achterdeurproblematiek te komen’.

John Meijers
By the Dutch press they were baptized ‘The model weed growers from Bierum‘, but their heroic struggle to break the deadlock around the back door brought them to the edge of the abyss. John and Ines cultivated in all openness and informed all authorities about their activities. They paid their electricity and even taxed on the profits, cultivated safely and without pesticides and only delivered invoices to two licensed coffee shops. Still, the breakthrough was not forthcoming. Now John and Ines hope to participate in the experiment with regulated cannabis cultivation with their foundation JoinUs.
Door de Nederlandse pers werden ze ‘De model wiettelers uit Bierum’ gedoopt, maar hun heroïsche strijd om de impasse rond de achterdeur te doorbreken bracht hen aan de rand van de afgrond. John en Ines kweekten in alle openheid en brachten alle instanties op de hoogte van hun activiteiten. Ze betaalden hun stroom en zelfs belasting op de winst, teelden veilig en zonder pesticiden en leverden alleen mét bon aan twee vergunde coffeeshops. Toch bleef de doorbraak uit. Nu hopen John en Ines met hun stichting JoinUs deel te kunnen nemen aan het experiment met gereguleerde cannabisteelt.
August de Loor
Since becoming the first street worker in the Netherlands in 1970, August de Loor has been involved with drugs and drugs policy in Amsterdam and far beyond. For years he ran the Adviesburo Drugs (Drugs Advisory Office) and pioneered a series of harm reduction initiatives, including XTC testing at parties, the Safe House campaign, heroin user rooms and the cannabis coffeeshop as a crucial part of drug policy. August is not only critical of the government and the addiction care industry, but also for the coffeeshop industry. In December 2017, he received the prestigious Frans Banninck Cocq Award for his important contribution to the Amsterdam, national and international drug policy.

Sinds hij in 1970 de eerste straathoekwerker van Nederland werd, is August de Loor betrokken bij alles rond drugs en drugsbeleid in Amsterdam en ver daarbuiten. Jarenlang runde hij het Adviesburo Drugs en verrichtte hij pionierswerk op het gebied van harm reduction: XTC testen op feesten, de Safe House campagne, heroïneverstrekking én de coffeeshop als cruciaal onderdeel van het drugsbeleid. Niet alleen voor de overheid, maar ook voor de coffeeshopbranche is hij een luis in de pels. In december 2017 ontving August de Frans Banninck Cocqpenning voor zijn belangrijke bijdrage aan het Amsterdamse, landelijke en internationale drugsbeleid.

Bart Vollenberg
Bart holds a unique position in the coffeeshop industry: he owns two coffeeshops in Almere and Lelystad, is a board member of the two national coffeeshop unions PCN and BCD and he founded the Epicurus Foundation, a think tank on regulation of the cannabis market. Epicurus has organized two well-attended conferences in Utrecht -‘The Transparant Chain I and II’- and took the initiative for the Grass Poll survey and Cannabis Connect, which now represents over 220 coffeeshops.
Hij heeft een unieke positie in de coffeeshopbranche: Bart Vollenberg bezit coffeeshops in Almere en Lelystad, is bestuurslid van de beide landelijke coffeeshopbonden PCN en BCD en oprichter van de stichting Epicurus Foundation, een denktank over regulering van de cannabismarkt. Epicurus organiseerde twee drukbezochte congressen in Utrecht, De Transparante Keten I en II en nam het initiatief voor de Grass Poll enquête en Cannabis Connect, waarbij inmiddels meer dan 220 coffeeshops bij aan zijn gesloten.

01 Q&A Live interview Henk de Vries and Ben Dronkers

Q & A / Live interview Henk de Vries (founder Bull Dog) and Ben Dronkers (Founder Sensi Seeds) interview by Derrick Bergman (festival organiser, VOC)
Hosted by Derrick Bergman, president of VOC and organizer Cannabis liberation Day
Henk de vries
As founder of The Bulldog, Henk de Vries is not only a living legend but also the owner of the first global cannabis brand in modern history. Since he started in 1975 in a basement on the Oudezijds Voorburgwal in Amsterdam with The Bulldog, his brainchild has grown into an empire with global fame. Like no other, Henk de Vries put his stamp on the phenomenon that according to Professor Egbert Tellegen should have been proclaimed ‘the most important Dutch social innovation of the past half century’: the coffeeshop.
Als oprichter van The Bulldog is Henk de Vries niet alleen een levende legende maar ook de eigenaar van het eerste wereldwijde cannabis merk in de moderne geschiedenis. Sinds hij in 1975 in een kelder op de Oudezijds Voorburgwal in Amsterdam begon met The Bulldog is zijn geesteskind uitgegroeid tot een imperium met mondiale faam. Als geen ander drukte Henk de Vries zijn stempel op het fenomeen dat volgens professor Egbert Tellegen al lang uitgeroepen had moeten worden tot ‘de belangrijkste Nederlandse sociale innovatie van de afgelopen halve eeuw’: de coffeeshop.
Ben Dronkers
Founder of Sensi Seeds, Hempflax, the Hash Marihuana & Hemp Museum, Cannabis Culture Awards and sponsor of hundreds of demonstrations, events, action groups, campaigns and organizations in the field of cannabis. Ben Dronkers is a pioneer, a visionary and one successful entrepreneur. His contribution to the international cannabis culture cannot be overstated.
