Scuffles broke out between police and hundreds of people taking part in a counter-protest against a demonstration organised by the far-right, anti-Muslim group PEGIDA (Patriotic Europeans Against the Islamisation of the West) in Groningen, Sunday. Police officers on horseback used batons on counter-protesters, which reportedly included members of the GroenLinks party. There were no reported arrests or injuries.

In a landmark decision, the lower House of the Dutch Parliament voted earlier on the 21st of February 2017, in favor of adding cannabis cultivation to it’s famous tolerance policy. A move that would decriminalize the supply aspect of the coffeeshops.
But what the media and most people don’t seem to have picked up, is an amendment by Liesbeth van Tongeren (Groenlinks, Green Party) has been adopted too, allowing patients to grow their own medicinal 5 plants.
We asked Rinus Beintema of the rising Social Club Suver Nuver for a response. Because whereas consumers rejoice, others like Rinus, will continue to feel the government’s heat until a working bill has been passed.
Social Club Suver Nuver is booming in the Netherlands, providing people with cannabis extracts for medicinal purposes. Because of the illegality of the plant and thus it’s extracts, the battle with the justice system continues. In the meantime, the social club has grown to around 5000 members. And with the opening of a fourth information center in Amsterdam, the club can’t be ignored anymore.
