Panic buying has already begun in various parts of the world, with people from various nations stricken by the Covid-19 outbreak stockpiling on basic necessities such as canned foods, instant noodles, hand sanitiser and um, toilet paper. But while people are stockpiling on all those things, Amsterdam citizens have been busy stockpiling on a different commodity entirely, according to France 24 and The Sun.
Widely known for their legalisation of marijuana, many Dutch citizens were seen queuing up outside ‘coffee shops’, which are also known to be dispensaries for marijuana, to stockpile on their stash before the government initiates a lockdown.
In a rush to ensure that they beat the deadline of closure for these ‘coffee shops’ on Sunday (15th March 2020), many turned out to make their final purchases that will hopefully last them through the duration of the lockdown period.
“For maybe for the next two months we’re not able to get some weed so it should be nice to at least have some in the house,” Jonathan, a Dutch buyer, said.
At this moment in time, the Dutch government has initiated a lockdown, which will last until 6th April 2020.
