© 2017 - This safe use/nice stay in Amsterdam campaign is brought by you by the Union of coffeeshop owners and the Union of smartshop owners, with the help of August de Loor / Stichting Adviesburo Drugs.

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

even worse.

GETTING RIPPED OFF

You have a high chance of being robbed or ripped off and getting into violent situations.
