I was just wondering as me and a few mates are thinking about going this summer. We live in the UK so flights are cheap, so's a hostel, so that'll be ok, but 1 of my mates seems to think that its expensive as hell. I was thinking about the cost of drink, food etc. If anyone knows how much weed is over there that certainly wouldn't go unappreciated

Cheers

It's pretty cheap apparently, my mate just got back from there and won't shut up about how awesome it is.

Ugh, don't waste your money on White Widow.
Spend 4 euro's/grm more for Blackout.
Don't buy the cheap weed, really, it's a waste unless you don't have to much money, but if your going on a holiday, just spend some more and buy the good stuff.

Also, NEVER buy the finished spliffs, there's almost no weed in it, and they use hairspray and other stuff to strengthen it.

Also, costs of drink and food in holland:
A hamburger? around 2 euro's.
Dinner in a restaurant, 14 euro's for a good meal, 2 euro's for a drink.
Drinks in mac donalds of w/e, also around 2 euro's for 0.5 L.

I also feel i should say at this point that the mayor of amsterdam is apparently running a campaign to get rid of the red light district, and iv heard illeagalise weed. Just thought id put that out there. Dunno how much truth there is to that but sucks right?

I went before and it was great, you will spend a fair bit on drink, it seemed that when i went my tolerance for alcohol was higher, i didn't buy any drugs though, just had some tokes of my friends weed.

As far as food goes, it depends on what quality you want it to be, there are fast food places called febo (although it is commonly known as the hole in the wall) and its basically like a vending machine that sells burgers and stuff, put a couple of euros in and the hatch opens and you take the burger, i didn't try it though. I would reccomend the pizzarias there, where i stayed (the hans brinker hotel, may mean something to you) was a ten minute walk from the main square, and all down the main road were pizza places, they are good and pretty cheap.

PLACES I RECCOMEND:

The water hole: a great little bar that does open mic blues music, has a pool table and a good range of beers, only draw back is there is a guy outside the toilet asking for 50 cents, plus you need to put your coat in the cloakroom.

Bourbon street blues club: this place was amazing, it was pretty small but it was an amazing atmosphere, the band on were great.

Flea market: they sold so many things here i didn't know where to start, its kinda like camden market but bigger and more drugs.

Irish bar: self explanitory, first stop when we got there, stayed till about 10 then went down to the waterhole.
WHOMP

Think of that next time you are not allowed to laugh.

normal price is € 2.5 for a regular joint, the prices are ok, it's a capital city, so it's a bit more expensive then the rest of the country, but it's ok, it should be a litte bit cheaper than the UK

Around 6 euros a gram for the good stuff. Yes there are plans for a smoking ban within enclosed places, however it only applies to tobacco. For me , that's a good thing as I don't smoke tobacco, I only smoke weed pure

amsterdam is so cool.

cant believe anyone has mentioned this but,

did you know that in amsterdam you can walk in to a movie theater and order a beer? and i'm not talking about no paper cup, i mean a full glass of beer.

and as for the hashbars, it's legal but it aint 100 percent legal. I mean you can't just walk into a restaurant, roll a joint and start puffin away. they want you smoking in your home or special designated places.

but it breaks down like this. it's legal to buy it, it's legal to own it, and if you're the proprietor of a hashbar, it'sl legal to sell it. it's illegal to carry it, but that doesn't matter cuz get this: if you get stopped by the cops in amsterdam, it's ILLEGAL for them to search you. i mean that's a right in amsterdam the cops don't have.

From june it will be illegal to smoke Tabacco in public spaces, although you can smoke joints without the tabacco, also. You may only smoke in coffée shops and not on the streets. Although it isn't a problem at all if you smoke on the streets and get caught, you will just be sent away by the cops.

Also, everything that is related to weed is illegal, although the cops don't make a problem of it and they don't do a thing about it. The cops DO have a right to search you if you give them a reason to. Although you won't get in any trouble if you have less than 5G on you.

Also, Hasj isn't mentioned yet. 7 euro's per gram for quality stuff.

I'm from the Netherlands. Weed isn't officially legal but you can carry around 5 grams or less without getting arrested or prosecuted, so it's kinda semi-legal (I'm a law student so I know a much more detailed way to describe it but that would probably bore you ) You can't smoke weed anywhere, (like a library or museum :P) but just go to park or something.

Amsterdam isn't that expensive but you have the bad luck that the euro is very strong compared to the pound (don't know if 'strong' is the correct verb here but you know what I mean)

I'll be going to london with a friend of mine this summer and we're in luck that we can get a lot of english pounds for our euro's

its a cool city but look up the date you're going and see if there's some festivals or ****. last summer me and my friends went by train thruogh europe and when we came to amsterdam it was like heavily crowded. we went to a hostel and asked about theire prices and it was at least dubble the price we'd paid anywhere else. turned out it was gay pride weekend.
#25
just out of curiosity, does anyone know if there are any laws about driving while under the influence of weed? I mean, i know there isn't really a way for them to test you on the spot, but are there any rules about that at all?

That would be illegal, and very stupid.

To above, 'strong' is an adjective and used correctly
#27
If they catch you high as a kite they can make you take a blood test, so that would be very stupid. Also, hasj beats weed (unless you smoke the weed pure), period!

And amsterdam is not all about the booze and weed guys! It's a beautiful city with a great history, TRY to see more than the inside of coffeeschops and the red light district!

I (being dutch and all) go to amsterdam once in a while, it never bores, very vibrant city!

Unless you're going purely for getting stoned, I'd go somewhere else. Its very similar to the UK... spread your wings, see some different cultures.

Here in the US in New York you would pay 20 USD for a gram of that and you would probably end up with a .8 if the guy was a typical shady bastard trying to make a living selling $20 bags.

Yeah, it works out in Amsterdam's favour because you're paying almost 13 euro for that gram (or .8 of a gram!)
