Netherlands. Doede de Jong starts crowd funding appeal to pay fine
Doede de Jong is perhaps the most well known cannabis freedom campaigner in The Netherlands. Over the years Doede has become a friendly face to many people in the Dutch and European cannabis campaigning community. Doede is also a key member in the VOC, the dutch organisation campaigning hard for an integrated approach to improved drug laws focussed more on compassion and health than on prohibition and punishment.
Recently Doede was given a ridiculous fine of over €200,000 and a 100 hour community service sentence for his involvement in cannabis growing. The cannabis community was as outraged as Doede. The crowd funding appeal will be a great help to Doede and the details of how to help are below. Even small donations will be a great help. More details are in the link below
