RESPONSIBLE & SAFE DRUG USE
Welcome to Amsterdam! We hope that you enjoy your stay in one of Europe's most liberal cities. Amsterdam is known for its liberal policy toward drug use. Unique to Amsterdam, is the presence of Coffee Shops (Marihuana / Hashish) and Smart Shops (Legal Highs as well as Test Kits for street drugs) where you can buy and enjoy a wide variety of legal ‘soft drugs’.
But, this does not mean that the use of drugs is completely without risk. So to make sure that you enjoy your stay without any trouble we advise you to stick to the Coffee Shops & Smart Shops and be aware of the risks of Street Dealers.
Risks of buying drugs off Street Dealers:
POOR QUALITY & FAKE DRUGS
Bad drugs can easily
land you in hospital or
GETTING RIPPED OFF
You have a high chance of being robbed or ripped off and getting into violent situations.
