GO­ING GREEN IN AM­S­TER­DAM

Destiny Man - - HOT SPOT -

Here’s how to make the most out of your Am­s­ter­dam cof­feeshop vis­its: Shop around. Am­s­ter­dam has hun­dreds of cof­feeshops to choose from, which dif­fer widely in terms of at­mos­phere and of­fer­ings. Don’t feel obliged to stick with a dingy hole-in-the-wall sim­ply be­cause it’s the first cof­feeshop you’ve come across.

Go easy. The strains of weed in Am­s­ter­dam can be quite strong, so be care­ful not to over-in­dulge. Stay hy­drated and err on the side of cau­tion to pre­vent any mishaps.

Ask ques­tions. The menus can be­fud­dle even the most sea­soned smoker, so en­quire about the var­i­ous joints and products on of­fer.

No smok­ing. Many cof­feeshops don’t al­low the smok­ing of to­bacco products, even when com­bined with cannabis, so en­quire about the reg­u­la­tions be­fore you light up.
