Nah we dont have coffee shops in England unfortunatley :( I think someone opened one when cannabis was droped to a class c drug but the police busted them. Wow such a terrible crime! There was problably someone getting stabbed to death in the next street while the police waste manpower arresting people enjoying a smoke!

Think it was called "The Dutch Experience" and the bizzies (police) raided it and closed it on the first day . Don't think it sold weed but you could smoke your own in there. The proprietor may have got a custodial sentence too - not too sure though. Getting monged in Stockport doesn't seem to have the same aura as in "The 'Dam" does it ??  ;)<br><br>At least you wouldn't get the "Psst ! Hey Charlie, Ecstacy, Speed" offers every 10 yards though from the local vendors ! Last thing you want to contend with after a huge bong! :P<br>

Its bad enough being sooooo monged on White widdow in a strange place, plus trying not to stare at ladies in neon lit boxes. Without someone wispering that in your ears every 30 meters.

Here's a bit of "Pulp Fiction" I though would fit in here... <br><br><br>                                  JULES<br>                       -- okay now, tell me about the hash<br>                       bars?<br><br>                                  VINCENT<br>                       What do you want to know?<br><br>                                  JULES<br>                       Well, hash is legal there, right?<br><br>                                  VINCENT<br>                       Yeah, it's legal, but is ain't a<br>                       hundred percent legal.  I mean you<br>                       can't walk into a restaurant, roll<br>                       a joint, and start puffin' away.<br>                       You're only supposed to smoke in<br>                       your home or certain designated<br>                       places.<br><br>                                  JULES<br>                       Those are hash bars?<br><br>                                  VINCENT<br>                       Yeah, it breaks down like this:<br>                       it's legal to buy it, it's legal to<br>                       own it and, if you're the<br>                       proprietor of a hash bar, it's<br>                       legal to sell it.  It's legal to<br>                       carry it, which doesn't really<br>                       matter 'cause -- get a load of this<br>                       -- if the cops stop you, it's<br>                       illegal for this to search you.<br>                       Searching you is a right that the<br>                       cops in Amsterdam don't have.<br><br>                                  JULES<br>                       That did it, man -- I'm fuckin'<br>                       goin', that's all there is to it.
