WELCOME TO OUR CITY!
The Netherlands is known for its liberal drug policy. Unique to our country is the presence of coffeeshops where you can buy & smoke cannabis or hashish, and smartshops where you can buy legal highs.
But be aware! Just like in other major cities there are street dealers that will try to sell you “cocaine”, “XTC” or “speed” which is of bad quality or 100% fake!
Risks of buying drugs on the street:
BAD QUALITY & FAKE DRUGS
Street dealers sell bad quality or 100% fake drugs that 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.
HOW TO IGNORE STREETDEALERS
AVOID & IGNORE
Street dealers will try to get your attention. Don’t listen to their sweet talk, keep walking!
TEST YOUR DRUGS
Realize that you can test your drugs! Test kits and other information on drug testing are available at smartshops.
NEED HELP? GET HELP!
When you’re using drugs, always take care of each other! And remember: less is more. If you need help;
DIAL 112 for emergencies! Don’t hesitate to explain what kind of drugs you’ve used. You will not be arrested for possession or use.
