AMSTERDAM – A majority of the city council in Amsterdam voted in favour of introducing a city-wide ban on smoking marijuana in public in areas where young people smoking joints have been causing public nuisance.

The decision comes after a successful trial ban in the De Baarsjes district of Amsterdam.

The experimental ban led to less public nuisance, city district De Baarsjes concluded after the year-long trial.
