Peaceful celebration

The free event is celebrating Dutch cannabis culture and promoting a broader legalisation of uses of the hemp plant.

Performers and speakers

Local and international bands and DJs will play music on the main stage, and there will also be a Reggae & Dub area.

Various speakers and debates will address the controversial subject of cannabis, marijuana and (soft) drug use.

At a large hemp fair, more than 50 companies and organisations will be presenting themselves and their wares.

Current rules on cannabis sales and use

There is a policy of tolerance regarding cannabis in the Netherlands. This means that selling, using and cultivating the substance is tolerated under certain conditions.

Coffeeshops can sell a maximum of five grams per person, and their stock can’t be bigger than 500 grams. They can’t sell to minors or be located near a school, and advertising is forbidden.

An adult can have up to 5 grams on them, and growing cannabis is allowed for up to five plants for personal use.

The policy was initiated in 1976 as a first step to full regulation, but there haven’t been new developments to this cause since.
