UK coffeeshop is still OPEN!!

  1. Update on the Dutch Experience, Uk’s first cannabisshop.

    Just to get all misunderstandings out of the way, the Dutch Experience has been open from day 1, september 15….

    When Colin, Marcel, Maruska, Marten and me were in the policestation, the police left, after shuttting the doors by putting plywood in front of them. As soon as they left, around 14.30 hrs, the patients unscrewed the screws and re-opened the place, smoking and toking, waiting for the next raid…wich never came!

    The place was locked off by the police again, that evening at 11.00 o’clock.
    Colin and us, the other ex-inmates, opened the place the next day again, and it has been open for socialising and smoking since. Colin was arrested again the next saturday, September 22, early in the morning, after the cops busted down his door, for the third time in Colin’s active career…

    He was released late at night, but the Dutch Experience opened at 16.00 hrs, with the help of a locksmith, the keys were held in the policestation, after that it has been open from 10.00 to 22.00 hrs, every day!!!!
    We don’t know where the smoke comes from, but there are baggies available, somehow?!
    Anyway, it is a huge succes, the place is to small to contain all those interested, all actually waiting for the next possible raid, but all very ready to be arrested, if needed.

    Read all about it on:

    and on our board:

    Colin is available by phone, in the place, so, you can convince yourself…
    The number is on the Dutch Experience site…

    Say high to Colin for me!

    I will go there next week, and make a nice report!

  3. LAUGH @ THE
    LAW DAY!
    It's time to stand-up & be counted!
    Saturday 1st Dec. - from 10 am Stockport

    This information is in the public domain and reproduced here for press & public information.

    Supporters of Colin Davies and the Dutch Experience have confirmed they are holding a big 'LAUGH @ THE LAW DAY', starting 10am and lasting into the evening, on Saturday 1st December - meeting at the Dutch Experience, Stockport Village, Hooper Street, Stockport, Greater Manchester.

    They promise a WHOLE day of fun and activities, and they expect a large turn out, as posters go up and thousands of flyers are distributed across the Greater Manchester area. In addition they have local media coverage, together with dozens of cannabis related internet sites and forums reporting the planned demo.

    A spokesman said, "Local people are outraged and we are assured of very strong local support, which combined with cannabis campaigners arriving from across the UK - will insure an a turn-out running into hundreds, if not thousands."

    Some of those, that handed themselves in for arrest last Saturday, whilst smoking joints, are intending to get arrested again, together with several others putting themselves forward for their first arrest - with the intention to bring the court system to a standstill, thus proving that the cannabis laws are unenforceable.

    One said, "we are looking for people to come out and support those demanding to be arrested - we are at a turning point, this is a grass-roots campaign to overturn the cannabis laws, backed by the public at large, the media, the medical profession, the police and many other groups."

    "We can not let them treat Colin Davies this way or close the Dutch Experience, we will keep going back to be arrested - until they finally stop this crazy waste of public money. We know that with so much more notice - hundreds or even thousands will gather to show their support for us."

    "We are fighting this campaign for the people - let the people speak with their feet and be in Stockport this coming Saturday, and show the government that the people have spoken."

    The spokesman said there is no need for people to hand themselves in, demanding to be arrested - they can just turn-up to show their support for those that do, and enjoy a peaceful fun-filled day - having a laugh at the law!

    He went on to say, "people should show up with drums, whistles, banners etc - let make this a fun, colourful, but above all peaceful protest - one of the final nails in the coffin of prohibition!"

    NB: Lots of things planned can not be published on the net, as DE supporters have been advised by some police officers that Manchester Police is monitoring certain sites.
