"Holland is THE Mecca for those..." Coffee Shops Tip by Krystynn

Coffee Shops, Amsterdam: 33 reviews and 30 photos


Holland is THE Mecca for those who wish to experience cannabis and marijuana (drugs) culture. We passed by some 'coffeeshops' here where we could clearly see people smoking marijuana and cannibis - <i>yes</i>, even along the pavements! I didn't realize (until I was told later by a native Dutch) that these coffeeshops sometimes have a separate counter where they sell cannabis to their customers!! Wow, talk about freedom and open-mindedness.
