Nol van Schaik freed from prison

The owner of Willie Wortel's Coffeeshop and the International Hemp Museum in Haarlem, Holland is out on the street. This is cheering to me as I've been following Nol's story for a long time.

He spent four months in a French jail on a really old charge, and reportedly suffered inhumane treatment in prison for eight weeks before his lawyer could even talk to him, but justice has prevailed at last and he "is now free to travel anywhere in Europe. He recently attended the Barcelona Highlife Fair and Cup, and continues his cannabis activism."

Nice to have a little good news for a change.
