Amsterdam photo of the day: smoke weed and drink

smokeweed

I did not patronize this establishment, in the Red Light District.

My brother (whom I was traveling with) and I, though we are accomplished drinkers, are not into pot, though, having no objection to it, we were up for giving it a go in Amsterdam; when in Rome, etc. But all the places we passed where marijuana was on offer were so unappealing that we couldn’t be bothered.

    You should have tried Easy Times. It’s a very nice and cosy place, right in the centre. The red light district is full of shady places, I rarely go there when I’m in Amsterdam.

    There aren’t any recreational outlets within 30 miles of my home, but I do drive by a number of Northern Colorado’s medical marijuana dispensaries, many/most of which are in the process of getting recreational licenses. None of them looks like a place I want to go. The ones that aren’t downright skeevy just look, I don’t know, off somehow. It doesn’t help that they give themselves ridiculous, too-on-the-nose names like “Cloud Nine Caregivers” and “The SmithSTONEian Institute” [sic]. You know, the kind of things people come up with while high.

    Yeah, places that try to appeal to tourists will appeal to the sort of tourist who thinks “yay, weed” and doesn’t attempt to discriminate.
