What don't you understand from the link in post 1? The title says it all, there will be no wietpass in Amsterdam nor the rest of the country.

It means that BBC article you heard being reported on is a bunch of muck at least as far as coffeeshops in Amsterdam and much of the country.

Yes with Jan 1 a new law went officially into effect.

And no it's not being enforced in much of the country including AMS.
