"all those who visit the Singel area, which is where the red-light district is located"

Pure genius.

Sebastiaan Meijer, spokesman for the Mayor has denied that there is any plan to ban foreigners from coffeeshops according to Dutch News but there is reference to making coffeeshops less attractive and exploration of cutting out the illegal backdoor supply chain which could result in only approved grown weed being sold in coffeeshops. So such weed would have legal status within Amsterdam relieving the pressure on coffeeshop owners but presumably the produce would be less attractive to a lot of the people on this forum because the potency would be controlled.
That`s how I see it.
