Hard drugs Amsterdam

Date: 13. jul 2018.
The following pages are for the purposes of education and information only. This should not be considered in any way to condone the use of cannabis, marijuana or other mind-altering substances Amsterdam and the Netherlands are well known for its tolerant soft drugs policy. Tourists and visitors are allowed to legally purchase marijuana or hash and consume these soft drugs inside the Coffee Shops. Smoking of marijuana and hash in public is forbidden. If you do that and you get caught, the police will tolerate up to 5 grams of marijuana and hash, because it is considered as the amount for the personal use, and you will not be further prosecuted, but the drugs will be ceased. The use of hard drugs, however, is strictly forbidden in Amsterdam. The situation was a little different until recently. The police, clubs and party organizers used to tolerate responsible ecstasy and cocaine use with the main goal of protecting the users from harm associated with the impure drugs. During the 1990s, it was actually legal to bring up to 5 ecstasy pills into a club or a party. This was also considered as the amount for personal use and it was the limit that was dividing users of drugs which were tolerated and the dealers that were prosecuted and arrested. In those days the police were actually protecting the drug users from the impure drugs. The police were photocopying warning signs for bad drugs at festivals. At one rave party that was held in 1998 there was a sign with an official police logo on the toilet door that contained a warning message “There are tainted ecstasy pills with Mitsubishi logos!” Ten years after the situation had completely changed, and the police became an enemy to the party goers. They would sneak in undercover (in regular clothes), detaining even the people smoking joints. This harsher drug policy did not accomplish anything significant. Today things are back in the middle. The hard drugs are strictly forbidden and you will be prosecuted carrying with you any amount of the hard drugs. If you use hard drugs in the coffee shop you will be thrown out, banned from coffee shops and prosecuted. Party organizers pretend to have zero tolerance drug policy and the drug doers are hiding their pills and powders in their socks and bras at the security check. The police aim is to target the dealers and they don’t generally target the users. That is the best case scenario you can expect these days in Amsterdam. There are a lot of illegal sales of the hard drugs in Amsterdam that you should be aware of during your Amsterdam tour. Only use drugs when you want to. Don’t let anyone else decide this for you. Never buy drugs in Amsterdam from drug dealers on the streets in the Red Light District or anywhere else. Usually, it’s fake and when it’s not fake, most of the time it’s actually another drug. In Amsterdam, there is actually a non-profit organization that is saving lives through good information. They will check the quality of drugs (pills, coke, LSD) and return them to you for the cost of 2 or 3 Euros per test. They are called “Stichting Adviesburo Drugs” and they are located 15 minutes away from the Red Light District.
