Grey Area Coffeeshop
a postmodern memoir
Grey Area Coffeeshop by de heer Slice
The true story of the founding of Amsterdam’s greatest cannabis emporium by three expatriate Americans during the War on Drugs.
A long time ago in a coffeeshop far, far away …
During the endless War on Drugs and in the waning years of the Twentieth century, three expatriate Americans founded Grey Area Coffeeshop in Amsterdam, capital of The Netherlands in the European Union. It was a time before the sprawling tentacles of the Internet encircled the globe, before the advent of cellphones, and before the decriminalization of cannabis in the United States. Kurt was dead, The Juice was on trial, and Han shot first.
Before Grey Area Coffeeshop became known as the CBGB of Weed and the greatest cannabis emporium in the world, it was the site of a harrowing clash of cultures where elements of the underworld vied with the rule of law in a daunting struggle to survive. And sell hempseed muffins.
It was the best of times. Het was de slechtste tijd ooit.
