DENVER — Denver's mayor will visit Amsterdam next week partly to learn about marijuana regulation in the country that led the way in pot liberalization.

The city announced Thursday that Michael Hancock and other officials plan to meet with representatives of Amsterdam's municipal government during a trip mainly focused on economic development.

The Netherlands has recently taken a harder line toward marijuana, including banning tourists from visiting coffee shops where pot is sold. Amsterdam still allows tourists in the shops but has been closing ones near schools.

Hancock and his delegation will also tour the Netherlands' main international airport and visit London during the trip.

Hancock plans to meet with London Mayor Boris Johnson to talk about the city's experience hosting the Summer Olympics and learn more about its "Tech City" initiative.
