When you see the coffeeshops its clear to tell the tourist biased ones are nice, clean, well lit with lots of daylight coming in, well decorated and often serve excellent meals as well as a range of non marijuana based products. Those aimed at the local market tend to be not so well lit and open to the daylight, often not regularily decorated to the point of sometimes being dingy and often offer no more than just a couple of cannabis varieties and a range of drinks to smoke with. So what the Dutch goverment would like is a move away from being a modern business investing in providing a good service to a mix of clientelle to some backroom smoking dives with yellow walls and catering only for those that don't have a better home to hang out with their friends in locally to smoke and chat. This isn't a step back its the equivalent of falling of the cliff.
