Discover the history and politics of marijuana consumption in Amsterdam, as well as the many other aspects of the controversial plant, on this 2-hour private walking tour. Visit the Cannabis College and the city's most prominent cannabis-culture hotspots.
What to Expect
Explore some of the most noteworthy of Amsterdam's 200 plus coffeeshops – famous throughout the world, but not for the quality of their espresso! The Dutch capital is renowned for its relaxed approach to the smoking of marijuana, and you'll be given a comprehensive overview of its aspects and uses.
Licensed coffeeshops in the Netherlands can legally store up to 500g of marijuana, of which they can sell up to 5 grams a serving to adults over 18. The cannabis connoisseur is spoilt for choice, with strands such as Dark Rasta, Generic Touristy, Authentic Dutch, and Cool, to name just the most widely available.
You'll visit the Cannabis College to learn about the medicinal and recreational uses of the plant, as well as the history and politics of drug consumption in the city. The tour will end with a visit to one of the coffeeshops for a drink and open discussion on the subject and, eventually, whatever tangent we might head off on!
