Dear Coffeeshop visitor ,

After the VOCM coffeeshops were open again for the residents of our neighboring countries, coffeeshops are all controlled by the mayor and temporarily closed.

This is a case arise in which the decision of the judges on 26 June 2013 has not altered. Currently parties pending appeal.

After that there will be more clarity about this discriminatory measurements. The Maastricht coffeeshops that are openened are only for Dutch residents and for those with an ID issued by the Dutch government.

For all other coffeeshop visitors the coffeeshops in the towns of Roermond, Venray, Sittard-Geleen, Heerlen and Kerkrade are opened.

Also you can visit other cities in the Netherlands, such as Amsterdam, Rotterdam, Nijmegen, Arnhem etc..

Thank you for your understanding and hope for a favorable ruling so that we can welcome you again.

Best regards,

Association of Official Coffeeshops Maastricht.


The VOCM is an interest association of Maastricht coffeeshops that, since 1999, is trying to clarify the sense and nonsense of cannabis for civilians, local authorities and government.
This to result in a more realistic cannabis policy with less undesirable side effects and a better acknowledgement of the public health aspects.
In 1993 there were 31 coffee shops in Maastricht, this number has been decreased to 16 in 2006.
Therefore the number of tolerated coffee shops has almost been halved. What can be noticed by everyone, is that with decreasing the number of coffeeshops both the illegal street dealing as well as the drug trafficking in the residential areas have strongly increased.
Not only from the point of view of the public safety, but also from the point of view of the public health there is talk of a grave development. Not only will illegal dealing lead to nuisance, it will also increase the risk of mixing the narcotics markets.

The cannabis consumer will then be running a risk to be confronted with hard drugs.

The increase of the not tolerated dealing of soft drugs can not be attributed to the increase of the use of cannabis.
Recent research from the authoritative Trimbos institute shows that the number of blowers has even slightly decreased.

In the media

By mutations within the administration and partly because of the political situation in Maastricht, we decided on our general meeting of 2014-06-26, to disband the VOCM.
We deplore having to take this step, and will therefore shortly get offline to run this site.
