Pot shops to be off-limits to visitors in Amsterdam

AMSTERDAM

The European nation's famous marijuana shops will soon be off limits to foreign visitors. Hundreds of those shops in Amsterdam alone will become private clubs, open only to adult Dutch citizens with the proper identification.

Opponents call the nationwide ban "tourism suicide" for a country known for its liberal policy on pot that's attracted college students and young travelers for decades.
