In Amsterdam there are a lot of places to go, but the Coffee shops will always be the most famous, there in amsterdam at the moment more than 300 coffee shops. It is always really bissy in amsterdam, there are so many people who are smoking weed.Every day all of the shops are filled with tourists and dutch people.
If it's your first time in a Amsterdam and you want to go into a coffeeshop don't be shy or scared. it's just like walking into a regular shop. Just walk up to the counter and ask for a menu which will include a variety of cannabis buds and hash, ranging in quality from OK to incredible. Feel free to ask questions, the staff in most places are quite friendly but some are as rude as hell. Most will give you a loan of a pipe or bong to use. Rolling papers and filter tips are available as well, usually at the counter.
The average price of a small bag (1 gram) runs approximately Euro 6-8. For you Americans that have no idea what a gram is, a "dime bag" is typically about half a gram. Some places offer pre-rolled joints of pure grass for around Euro 7 or grass and hash joints mixed with tobacco Euro 3-4.
When people are talking about weed, mostly they think about Bob Marley he was the person who made it look normal and let everyone want to try it. Bob Marley did not use cannabis recreationally, and did not see its use as a casual matter.
Viewing himself as a holy person (as do all Rastafarians), Marley strongly believed that marijuana opened up a spiritual door which allowed him to become the artist and poet he was.Sadly he past away, but no one will ever forget Bob Marley.

Lambic will let you leave with a purchase you've always really wanted to have, but you´ve just not realized until owner Klaas pointed you on it. On holiday in Amsterdam or just nearby? Make sure you make a visit this to special comic shop.
You can find this old comic shop at the Kerkstraat in the heart of Amsterdam. And rightfully it may be called old! Lambic is the oldest antiquarian comic shop throughout Europe and was founded since 1968. Since that time the store has become a worldwide center for comic strip lovers. The shop name is due to comic hero 'Lambic' from the famous comic strip Suske & Wiske.
This king of comic stores, offers, besides classical and hard to get titles (both in Dutch and English), the most modern and recent strips. Even t-shirts and dolls are sold, as long as it has to do with one of the many comic book heroes. If there is a title not present, there is the possibility to order.
Ask advice to Klaas or one of the other employees, if you have questions. As one client said:
''Do you say: my brother is looking for something about creative ways for rabbits to commit suicide, then sais Klaas' Andy Riley! "and he rushes to the shelf of comic books about creative ways to commit suicide for rabbits. Or you say 'do you have anything like Persepolis, but then another dictatorship anywhere in the world? "Klaas then turns the graphic novel "Pyongyang" by Guy Delisle out. For antiquarian comic Lambic has that sort of thing. Like everything else you can think of, and more.''
Even if you're not going to buy a comic book, or you really not like comics, still Lambic it's worth to visit. Klaas and his staff will still surprise you. Dive into the world of comics and make a quick visit to the website.
