Really? I thought it was completely legal, here is Portugal it's almost the same then, if the cops find us they just take it, it's almost legal.
But can't you guys buy weed in coffee shops?

Ha, me and some of my mates are planning to go to Ibiza/Magaluf/Malia for a week and Amsterdam for a couple of days next summer.
I'm going to create the procrastination club, just later...

Take a map.
All tourists ask for directions and we just tell 'em to go some random direction, probably the wrong one.
#16
aparently girls have to walk in the exact middle of the pavement/sidewalk or they'll get snatched by people in buildings or passing cars. that's what my frend sed his cousins has to do.

also i think i heard that amsterdam is so bad that there's actually a green light district.

its a strange law in amsterdam about weed, its legal to sell it and have possesion of it but i think its only illegal to actually smoke it, but no one cares over there.
#18
If you want to smoke pot and dont want the criminal activity, wait 1 year and go to Maastricht there is gonna be a weedboulevard here..

There's an excellent guitar shop called De Plug, I can't remember where it is but Google Maps it and you should be able to find it.

As long as you keep yourself to yourself and treat people with respect you should be fine. I wouldn't want to live in amsterdam, its good to go to for a week or long weekend and drink and get stoned every day, and it is a lovely city to explore and sight see, but i think the novelty would wear off if i lived there.
WHOMP

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

Just buy a tourist guide, there are plenty of cool things you can do in Amsterdam. Despite the bad reputation the city may have, it's also a city with a lot of history so I recommend visiting a few museums or the Anne Frank house if you have some time left.

The red light district does attract drugdealers and pickpockets but if you stay away from the few dodgy looking streets you'll be fine. There are plenty of police officers patrolling the place and I believe there are security cameras in most streets so it's not like you'll be in a lot of danger all the time.

And of course you can smoke weed in the streets here. Sure, the official rules are a bit odd but nobody knows them over here either. I've never heard of people getting arrested because they were smoking weed in public.
#32
stay in amsterdam but buy your weed from Haarlem, it's way cheaper and only like 20 mins via the train. Most of Amsterdam's shops are tourist traps, but Grey Area should still be quite nice. amongst others. But Amsterdam is a tourist trap! :P
#33
I didn't really like the Anne Frank house, it was too modernised, the picasso museum is cool, and some good bars are bourbon street blues club (you must go there) and the waterhole, also, the irish bar is nice.
WHOMP

Think of that next time you are not allowed to laugh.
#35
one last question (maybe)

is it legal to smoke weed in hotel rooms?

Amsterdam is nowhere near as liberal as most people make out, and the Red Light District isn't THAT big.

Tips:

1) Buy a transport card. I forget what they're called, but it basically gives you free access to public transport, and it's dead cheap- 20 euros for the week IIRC

2) At least go to something cultural. It'd be a shame to get f*cked on weed (which, as has been said, is illegal to be smoked on the street, and you should only buy it from licensed coffee shops) and not see the attractions like Anne Frank's house, or the Natural History museum of Amsterdam (I forget the name, but there's this one huge room with the walls lined with formaldehyde jars containing f*cked up foetuses, human and animal)

3) Enjoy yourself, but stay safe. Just like any major city, there are always dangers. Like rapists, muggers and molemen.

4) Although the Dutch are fantastically nice people, learn a little bit of their language before you go- just the basics. I find that talking a little bit to a person in their own language gives a better reaction. But most of them can speak English better than we can, so that's not necessary.

5) Eat kroketten. Lots and lots of kroketten. And have at least one meal in a pannekuchenhaus.

avoid Jack Herer as your first smoke, i over indulged on this when i first got there ( only had half a joint ) and my legs went to jelly, had to stagger to the nearest pizza restaurant before i could breathe again.
#39
Ye, the weed in Amsterdam is beyond anything you've ever tried before if you live outside Holland. And yes, Jack Herer is amazing :p
#40
I live there, anything you want to know in particular?

My favorite coffee shop was De Rokerij, not far from Leidseplein. Leidseplein is the place where the fun is at by the way. We always hung out at R&R, a bar there.

You can smoke outside safely if you're 18, but they ask when you buy the weed so watch out. Otherwise you should be ok.

Don't go to the Bulldog.
