Yeah, but get there quick before they close down all the coffeeshops! But on a serious note you really dont have to smoke to have fun there - i proved it this past June. If you get a chance, rent a bike and explore every little sidestreet you can. But watch out for the tram!

Yeah they are shutting down the coffee shops and the red light district, at least the areas in the center of the city and not the ones on the outskirts of town. They also banned psilocybe mushrooms because some dipshit decided to go crazy on them and she died. Why do kids always ruin the fun for us

Well weed has always sort of still illegal there too, so are mushrooms banned or are they "banned"...

I found this article. I guess its a good thing if it involves keeping children out of harms way.

alright lets not get too excited!

not all of the coffeeshops are closing down, you'll still be able to get your weed for a long time yet. while it sucks that some are going out of business, hopefully it means there will be a higher quality (hopefully).

besides, there is a lot more to see than that- like the person above said, grab a bike and go exploring. there is so much to see!

Yes, I know. However, admitting it is the first step so hopefully I'm on the road to recovery.
