“Coffee shops” in the Netherlands are back open.

But they sell more pot than pots of coffee, according to Bloomberg.

They had initially closed to help curb the spread of coronavirus.

The limited reopening allows for takeaway orders.

That means no lingering in the shop to have a smoke.

But before you even get through the doors, you need to use hand sanitizer!

The sign also says they can refuse access to coughers and sneezers.

Dutch officials obviously want to stop the spread of the outbreak, but they also want to stop street dealers from jumping in and illegally selling marijuana.

Bloomberg says weed is tolerated in the Netherlands, but it’s never been fully legalized.

Which makes it illegal to sell weed outside of official channels.

The plan for black market drug dealers just went up in smoke!
