Open a coffe shop and sell my own plants

Post by Rekuuuuu_ » Sun 24th Nov 2019 03:16 pm

Hello Guys,
I’m almost sure about that a lot of people asked the same questions, but I didn’t find it, so I hope I will find my answers here.😄
I would like to open a new coffe shop and I would like to sell my own plants. Anybody knows that how can I make my dreams come true?😄 How can I get a license? What I need to have?
Every answer is helpful!
Thank You,
Reku

A "new" coffeeshop you say. Surely you are not considering Amsterdam as your base. No new licenses will be issued. The last new shop I know of is in Hoofddorp. Selling your own plants. Do you know production is illegal in the Netherlands. Your best bet is save a LOT of money and buy out an existing shop.

Enjoy

Alternatively have your long standing 'unofficial' coffeeshop eventually licenced by the city authorities, print an underground newspaper, hold a free-festival in the Vondel, and then attack the police...

That's a great dream and a BIG dream it is. :shock: :clap: You've already got two great answers to, two of your questions. But if your serious, move to the Netherlands, (if you don't already live there) get into the business, work 110%, ask a TON more questions and see where it takes you. "If you never do, you'll never know." Good Luck. :mrgreen:

I think what you are suggesting would be impossible for you,

The Dutch authorities are already trying to reduce the number of coffeeshops, not give out new licences to foreigners.

Think of something else!

I see. Thank You very much! I lived a half year there. @AzLaker (I don’t know how can I tagg😆) but I will ask a lot of people and I think I will go back for a weekend and ask the coffe shops. The owner will know everything I guess.@FlyByNite bad to hear. But Do You where do the shops buy the weed? I mean there are a base cooperative who can be grower or they buy from different people? @kingbee Maybe I should change the location then. I will try to find out every opportunity. Maybe there are a loophole.😀
But really Thank You all!

Regarding the supply to coffeeshops, please do yourself a favor and research a bit about the backdoor problem / paradox / challenge / fuckeroo, as it is quite well described out there. To sum it up: Only what goes out the front door (i.e. 5 grams max per customer per shop, over 18 only, must be able to show ID at all times while in premises etc. etc.) is decriminalized / tolerated, the supply (i.e. what comes "in the backdoor") is still a criminal activity. Translated it means that it is very unlikely that you will ever get any info on the inner workings of that part of the coffeeshop scene, unless you become a part of it by other means than walking in the door and asking questions. It also means that, at least in the open, no coffeeshop sells "their own weed" as a direct connection to an illegal activity like that would spell their immediate demise.

The best advice here, if you are very, very serious about it, is move to NL and get involved with the scene. This usually means working your way up from a very low point, having access to a very good supply of product at low costs (and the willingness to risk long jail sentences should you be caught) and / or have 1 million+ € (and that is probably setting the bar low) laying around to buy your way in. All in all, it takes a lot of work, a lot of luck and a lot of resources for your dream to become a reality and you might be better of looking for other places to "set up show", but it is not impossible.

The pool you speak about is so full of sharks ,good luck . You need freinds or deep pockets and if you have money there,s a whole group of extortionist just waiting for you . Just read there where fifty public gang shootings and a severed head left in front of a restaurant where gangster hang out . Thinking the part about selling plants means you have done little reach so.....

Macky knows what's up:

The Netherlands is quite a criminal place, make that a Very criminal place for drug sales, especially in bulk.

If you are not connected, do not know anyone and are trying to sell kilos to shops via the backdoor, then expect to get robbed at the very least.

Basically, you won't be opening a coffeeshop, and won't be buying one out unless you have literally millions of euro to spare - they make huge sums of money, with a constant stream of customers at almost every coffeeshop in the country, and trying to get into that scene is very expensive and dangerous.

Also, if you want to sell your bud in NL, don't expect to get much for it - the blackmarket is relatively cheap, the coffeeshops won't give you much anyway, despite charging a small fortune in many cases to customers, and as stated you need to be connected to not get robbed or worse.

My advice is to stop getting so high on your own supply, lol, and forget the pipedream, just enjoy your own smoke and find another business avenue to go down, which is safer and more profitable for you ;)

Lol, you obviously have an understanding of the underground scene in NL, so that's why I said it ;)

I have seen the film based on Willem Holleeder's kidnapping of the Heineken president, Freddy Heineken, and read into Willem Holleeder's past.
[film: Kidnapping Mr. Heineken, released 2015]

And more interesting for me was the documentary I saw on Klaas Bruinsma, who was an instigator back in the day for importing huge amounts of hash into the Netherlands back in the day, e.g. from Pakistan in the late 70s, and by the end of the 1980s, he had become the largest drug trader in European history.
- https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Klaas_Bru ... drug_lord)

About the grenades, yes I've been reading about that this year, and apparently they are available for only 5-20 euro each on the black market, according to the Amsterdam chief of police ( https://www.at5.nl/artikelen/187979/hoo ... n-20-euro- ), which is a ridiculously cheap price!

These tactics the Dutch gangs are now using with explosives are also used in Naples in Italy, another highly criminal city.

Loved following that trial, madness, he will have them all killed off soon enough (snitches get stitches) , Dutch underworld always makes for a good read, my money is on the Jewish Gangsters 😂
