While hard drugs (cocaine, morphine, heroin) are banned as in other countries, the "soft drugs" - cannabis in all its forms (marijuana, hashish, hash oil) is legal for personal use only.

Magic mushrooms, also known as shrooms, were also legal until the 1st of December 2008.

Certain drugs that are legal in other countries such as bzp are illegal in Amsterdam but legal in the republic of Ireland.

Whilst Amsterdam has many coffee shops that sell cannabis quite freely to customers. It is in fact illegal to sell and quite frequently these shops are raided by police. It is acceptable to possess a small amount of these soft drugs, but you can still be charged for intoxication. By and large, the police and authorities take a 'liberal' approach to laws about drugs.

The answer is no. The city of Amsterdam can not change Dutch Law. The Dutch Law makes a differents between hard and soft drugs. Softdrugs in small amounts are 'legal' only for personal use.

NO its not.....its legal in Amsterdam though


If by "drugs" you are referring to things other than prescriptions issued by physicians, and I will assume you are and referring to such things as marijuana, hashish or other soft drugs (mushrooms, etc.), the legal age for one to purchase such things is 18 years old. You will be asked to provide legal proof of age if the shop owner suspects you are not yet 18.


Amsterdam de-criminalized organic drugs and now has a lower useage than the u.s. apparently they have succeded in making weed "boring" what I'm saying is that you will find a higher percentage of people who don't use it where it is legal, than you will find of people who lie about not using it where it is legal. I'm not saying they don't use in Amsterdam, there are plenty of people who still love their drugs. essentialy, you cannot prevent the use of drugs. making them illegal only puts it in the control of druglords and causes violence. the government has no controll of illegal drugs, they can bust all of the stoners they want, drugs are never going away. there will allways be a new drug, and there will allways be a new person providing it.
