I keep reading conflicting articles. First I find stuff on the internet that hte conservative government has made the coffee houses places only for locals, then I read that no, they're open to all. Not that I'm a big stoner, but when in Rome.... 

Anybody know what the current status of the coffee houses is?

The weed pass was never brought into Amsterdam as planned. So yes you can still purchase it as a non resident.

They have been talking about these rules every since I can remember.

The smoking of drugs such as hash and cannabis is not legal, but tolerated in Amsterdam. The law of Netherlands allows you to freely buy and smoke up to 5 grams of pot, hash, cannabis, weed and marijuana in special hash bars, these bars also known as coffee shops.
