Cannabis coffeeshops in the Netherlands

There were a total of 650 coffeeshops in the Netherlands that sold small amounts of cannabis in 2010.  A majority of the coffeeshops were located in North and South provinces.

58 coffeeshops, or 9 percent of the total, were found to be within 350 meters of a school, a violation of the national laws.
