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.
"A lot of people come to Amsterdam for a little drug experimentation. Contrary to what most visitors seem to think, drugs are far from legal in Amsterdam."http://www.world66.com/europe/netherlands/amsterdam/drugs
Not all drugs are legal there, only marijuana and the so called "magic truffules" the magic mushrooms are now banned all other drugs are illegal
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. That will be marijuana/weed and hash But the city of Amsterdam is more liberal in the possession of small amounts of hard- and soft drugs.
The legal age to purchase and smoke marijuana in Amsterdam is 18. Soft drugs, like marijuana, are sold in coffee shops throughout the city.
