Hashish helps the suffering of chickens

The famed coffee shops of Amsterdam are turning to free-range eggs for their hashish "spacecakes" to reduce the suffering of chickens.

Four large shops have switched to free-range eggs and 20 more plan to follow. The shops get through hundreds of eggs a week for their spacecakes, which are baked with marijuana or hashish and can give an intense high.

Soft drugs are officially banned in the Netherlands but under a policy of tolerance, buyers are allowed to have less than 5 grams of cannabis in their possession.
The coffee shops, where marijuana can be smoked openly in a relaxed atmosphere, are one of Amsterdam's big tourist draws.
