Why go?
On Cannabis Liberationday we send a signal to all politicians: down with the tourist ban for coffeeshops and all other repressive measures against cannabis. It’s time for rational legalization. The more people turn up, the clearer the signal. Besides: a splendid time is guaranteed for all…

What’s on?
Apart from a full program with bands, speakers and Dj’s, there’s a hemp market, fresh food and drinks, Evert’s fabulous Vaporizers and a Cannabis Film Festival in Europe’s largest Ger tent. For the first time we’re hosting the Highlife Cannabis Cup ceremonies. Scroll down for full schedule of events.

Spread the word!

Welkom bij het VOC, dé koepel van alle organisaties en individuen in Nederland die gekant zijn tegen het verbod op cannabis. Repressie is dure en contraproductieve symboolpolitiek. Wereldwijd vindt het Nederlandse beleid van decriminalisering steeds meer weerklank. Het is tijd voor de volgende stap: cannabis uit de strafwet.
