I'm turning twenty in eleven days, and am going to amsterdam with mates to celebrate. Obviously I will sample er, the local culture while im there, and was just wondering if anyone had any tips on what to do. I put this here due to the fact obviously activities will involve smoking weed

1st of all, welcome to TH
i heard theyve been closing a lot of the coffee shops (thats what theyre called) in the red light district, but remember its only tolerated in that part of the city. So I'd recommend not driving or doing anything stupid while stoned, and i wouldnt sample any "culture" besides alcohol and weed. Umm other than that, have fun, and post pictures later if you can

p.s. i've never been there, so anyone else feel free to correct me if any of this is wrong.

PM me, I'm bored

It's pretty straight forward. You buy weed in coffee shops and are allowed to smoke it in the designated areas (usually inside the coffee shop). I'm pretty sure you aren't allowed to smoke it anywhere else, especially not in the main parts of the city where there are kids around.

I'm assuming it's alright to give this kind of advice since it is advice given under the laws of the Netherlands?

Have fun! Make sure you do your research on Coffeeshops!! Some are better than others with better prices and higher quality cannabis. You don't want to get ripped off or anything, and even though it's tolerated the prices there aren't any cheaper than they are here.

Also just because you're in Amsterdam don't think that means all you have to do is smoke weed and visit hookers. Amsterdam is a very cool city with plenty of museums and places to visit. Get high and go to an art museum and really appreciate it. I'm pretty sure the Van Gogh Museum is there. Art + Weed is always excellent. A few tokes and you'll be good to go.

Also they have the Anne Frank museum there as well, and I think some other cool museums too.

Have Fun!!
