The owners of three cannabis-selling cafes went on trial Wednesday in the southern Netherlands charged with selling weed to foreigners, in a case both sides of a heated drugs debate in this border city hope will clarify the legality of a clampdown on so-called coffee shops. Maastricht is using new legislation banning coffee shops from selling cannabis and marijuana to people who don't live in the Netherlands as a way of clamping down on what the local mayor says was nuisance caused by hundreds of thousands of drug tourists driving into the picturesque heart of the city to stock up on weed. Josemans is a spokesperson for the coffee shops in Maastricht and is expect to go on trial next week. (AP Photo/Peter Dejong, File)
