vanderlaanEnd 2014 Van der Laan told the council to examine possibilities for regulated cannabis cultivation. The municipality would appoint companies to legally grow cannabis. In theory this should insure the quality of the cannabis and reduce illegal crops. The mayor has now come to the conclusion that within the framework of the law in the Netherlands it is currently impossible to experiment with regulated cannabis cultivation.
