Utrecht sets up Netherlands' first 'cannabis club' to create legal supply chain




Utrecht has become the first city in the Netherlands to set up its own cannabis growers’ club for recreational use.

The Social Cannabis Club Domstad has been registered with the local chamber of commerce so that a small group of approved growers can cultivate the drug under the supervision of the local authority.

The municipal council has asked the ministry of justice to give the club an exemption from the opium law, similar to those granted to producers of medicinal cannabis.

However, justice minister Ivo Opstelten has indicated he is opposed to local councils authorising the cultivation of cannabis and threatened to take action against Utrecht if it goes ahead with the plan.

The move is the latest attempt to resolve the legal anomalies surrounding cannabis in the Netherlands. Officially the drug remains illegal, but licensed coffeeshops are allowed to sell small quantities on their premises under strict conditions.

Cultivation, production and wholesale of cannabis are outlawed altogether, leaving coffeeshops without a legitimate supply chain. Utrecht says the cannabis club model is designed to decriminalise all aspects of recreational drug use.

Several local authorities have made attempts in recent years to authorise cannabis production, but the idea has run up against resistance in The Hague to any further tolerance measures.

Utrecht’s administrators have written to Opstelten to call for an exemption for Social Cannabis Club Domstad.

They wrote: “The proponents of this initiative see the club model as an alternative form that complements rather than replaces coffeeshops, specifically aimed at preventing the effects on public health of uncontrolled cultivation.”

The club will also impose controls on the quality and strength of the cannabis to address concerns about the health risks of skunk, which contains a high proportion of the active ingredient THC.

The government has put forward plans to reclassify cannabis with a THC content of more than 15 per cent as a hard drug.

A survey from the Trimbos Institute, which monitors drug addiction, found that the average THC level had fallen sharply in the last 10 years from more than 20 per cent to around 13.5 per cent.
