High Times Cannabis Cup Raided in Amsterdam

High Times Cannabis Cup Raided in Amsterdam

CANNABIS CULTURE - Amsterdam police are in the process of raiding the High Times Cannabis Cup for the first time in its 24-year history.

Cannabis Culture received several messages from Cup-goers this morning, warning that police have swarmed the location and are searching people before letting them leave and confiscating marijuana.

A video sent to CC by an attendee of The Cup show a police officer looking at a table while an announcement over the loud speaker talks about the police entering the building and says in English: "You need to leave the building through the exits. When leaving the property, you will be subjected to a search by police [inaudible] of the opium act."

Early reports of the raid are already hitting Twitter and the rest of the Internet.

Former CC Editor Dana Larsen (who wrote an article about the Cup for the Vancouver Sun this year) is giving updates as it happens on his Twitter account.

"Huge crowd of #cannabiscup attendees waiting to get searched on their way out of the cup." he wrote. "Police officer told me they investigated yesterday, saw some booths giving out weed & breaking other rules. So now the event is shut down."

Another of his posts says, "Everyone will have their buds confiscated but no-one will be charged or fined. This is the first time this has happened in 24 years."

I asked one why this was happening and he told me undercover police had investigated the Expo yesterday and seen violations of the Opium Act. He cited things such as some people giving away free samples of bud and hash, offering bong hits to promote their business, and so on.

See, that term pedo gets thrown around a lot.
Is a 16 year old guy having sex w/a 16 year old girl a pedophile?
If not, then how is a 30 year old considered a pedophile for doing the same thing?
I think y'all need to look up the definition for pedophile.

Ive never been to Cannabis Cup but if booths were actually openly giving "bong hits" and samples of hash and weed out, then it sounds like they are the only ones to blame for ruining the event.

Laws suck but what can ya do :shrug:

Of course it's happening inside your head.
Why should that mean it isn't real?

There were about 50 police officers on site, and about two dozen tax agents wearing reflective green jackets. The tax agents questioned exhibitors about their products, sales and receipts. I saw some exhibitors being questioned as their cannabis was put into plastic evidence bags by uniformed officers.




Hmm, I wonder what this was really all about :lol:

What a bunch of faggots.

there's still some good being done.  i'm going to a conference on psychedelics in a few weeks to hear all about it.  i think it's just what i need to get my ass in gear with this life.  anyway, it's sad that this happened.  very sad indeed.
