Famous Coffeeshops

Cannabis, marijuana, dope, weed, bud – whatever you call it, it’s one fascinating plant. Cultivated for thousands of years for hemp fibre; used to treat hundreds of ailments; treasured for spiritual and religious use all over the world it also also the world’s fourth most popular mood-altering substance after caffeine, tobacco and alcohol. Why do some say it can save the planet and others claim it ruins lives? Conflicting reports and opinions make for a hazy image – is there a way to cut through the smokescreen?

Join us for an in-depth investigation of the cannabis culture of Amsterdam: the history, (il)legality and future of the city’s most talked about subject. This is an honest, fun and impartial look at the Netherlands’ drugs policies and their consequences that explores all the arguments for and against cannabis from the point of view of the law, the consumers and business. What lessons have we learned after nearly four decades of this policy and how has Amsterdam changed? Can the coffeeshops survive hostile legislation and pressure from neighboring countries? We’d like to discuss these issues and more as we roll through the Red Light District and Chinatown.
