9. No doubt. The conservative reaction to Theo Van Gogh had a lot to do with it

The right wing there (nothing near as right wing on economics as the right wing here) got voted into office and some cities were complaining about the tourism - especially British football fans who cross the chunnel and get both drunk and stoned and make a nuisance of themselves - but they did and do that without cannabis.

One time I was at a football match that was against a British team and the fans were scary to me - the ones in the end zone - they're called hooligans, even by their own count.

And Maastricht was complaining because that city is at the border for Belgium, Germany, France, Luxembourg.... traffic jams, that sort of thing.

But I would imagine the tourist dollars outweigh the few who make trouble.
