In a landmark decision, the lower House of the Dutch parliament voted in favour of adding cannabis cultivation to it's tolerance policy. A move that would decriminalize the supply aspect of the coffeeshops. The bill would exempt professional growers working within certain conditions from punishment, creating a closed system from the production to the consumption of cannabis. Not legalized, but tolerated under government control. But who is going to supply the coffeeshops? Big state controlled companies like Bedrocan, who is the sole producer for medicinal cannabis in Holland or greenhouse tomato-farmers? What about the original growers?
