The Bulldog, Amsterdam
One of the tourists' popular targets: a Coffeeshop, one from among much. Standing in front of Centraal Station there are about 40 coffeeshops within a 10-minute walk.
You can get coffee at these places too, but if that is all you want just look around for a café and you will be set.
The main attraction here is the marijuana or hash you can safely and cheaply buy from someone behind the counter, and then smoke it right there. How this all works, you can visit a coffee shop without feeling really weird about it.
The highest prices of cannabis/hash are in Amsterdam, in central location can be up to €12.00 /g for grass and €30.00/g for hash. One of the cheapest coffee shops with still good stuff is Central coffeeshop located at Prins Hendrikkade 89, a bag of 2,4g Special costs €12.50. The maximum ammount you may buy in a coffee shop is 5g per person.
To get a "grass-seed" even on the flower market. The law allows anybody to cultivate a cannabis at home.
The regulation is very funny for me: according to the law smoking a cigarette containing pure marijuana is allowed, however smoking with tobacco is strictly prohibited and fined, a €300 fine for the first offense and €2,400 for a fourth.
Never forget Netherlands is the most liberal place in Europe, legalizing sex (prostitution) and drugs (hash).
The Bulldog cafes are found all over Amsterdam. They say the first coffeeshop ever in Amsterdam was a Bulldog coffeeshop and it all started more then 25 years ago.
Seeing all the bulldogs around town made me miss one special Sexy Samurai one!
The Bulldog is the Amsterdam's historical coffee-shop. There are 2 or 3 Bulldog's Coffee in the city centre. I think that one of the most beautiful coffee-shop is 'La canna' with its 3 floors (the largest one, near the Dam).
Remember that if you go to the coffee-shop you will probably listen disco music and if you go to a rasta-coffee you will listen reggae.
When you are in Amsterdam you see a lot off coffeeshops. They are all smoke Marihuanais. So dont go there.!!! It's beth for youre healthy.
