    There are drugs that are legal here, but illegal at home. There are even shops that sell some of the more exotic mind altering drugs in Amsterdam. Make sure that you do not take it home with you or you might end up in prison!

    I am a Malaysian first time in Amsterdam, in our country there's no prostitutions and Ganjas, if you found carrying this GANJAS, you will be HANGED TILL DEAD but in Amsterdam, I was in a shop selling all this Ganjas. Marijuana is not legal in the Netherlands too, it is tolerated.

    Smart-smartshopping in A'dam

    by dustmon Written Jul 10, 2010

    The best way to say it is, know your limit in everything when you're visiting another country. Smart drugs are legal and very strong in some cases, so know what you are taking and who you will be with that day/night....Waking up in a Dutch jail the next day is not a fun thought for anyone. Try to have a designated friend who stays fairly sober, and LISTEN to them....
    Hot teas and cola drinks have always been good ways (for me!) to wind down if too crazy, so stop by a coffeeshop and relax if you feel like you are fixing to explode.....
    peace out.

    Take it easy

    by Birsen Written Jul 10, 2010

    If you never smoked marihuana in your life don't get disapointed with results. You might not like it or feel bad in the stomach. All of them are high quality, so take my advise, if you are not used to smoke ask the the mild type. It's very good and enough for two people to get a nice chill for an hour. And don't get anything from someone on the street, just go to any coffeeshop.

    Best not to stay in "Coffee Shops"!!!

    by ConorB Written Nov 18, 2010

    Oh, and if you are tempted to visit any of the world famous "Coffee Shops" to sample some of their delights,(hash etc), a word to the wise, purchase your items there but do not partake until you return to the safety of your Hotel room, just in case of any drowsy side effects after you leave the coffee shop! It's much safer to fall back onto a "marshmallow bed" in your room, than try to find your way back to your Hotel, drowsy & disorientated. I believe, it can be some potent stuff!!! You have been advised (warned)

    Smoking

    After you've smoked a few, things are not always what they seem! I stuck to the light stuff, but even this had a bit of a kick.

    ??!

    Dampkring

    De Dampkring has the strongest selection of hash available in Amsterdam. Namely the Moonshine, it will knock you on your ass. Be careful it can be quite a rush if you are not used to strong stuff.

    THC Saturated

    THE SMOKING LEAF!!

    After inhaling so much THC, it can make one feel somewhat green, much like a marijuana plant:))
