In the Netherlands you're free to be whatever you want to be :)


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Robert_Haug

In fact, they have special places where you can do this: They're in Amsterdam, and they're labeled "coffee shops"...


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/xxfrench69xx

I have been waiting for a weed joke on this program for a long time! BEDANKT!


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/a.leiton

Here in Uruguay we are all birds.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/JoshauNathanael

Coffeeshops are not only in Amsterdam. Weed is legal in the entire Netherlands


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Reandw

It is not legal, it is tolerated, with rules.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Raphi_K

Well, decriminalised anyway. :D

However, most places will not sell to tourists. Only in certain cities (primarily Amsterdam) can non-residents purchase it.

Especially after smoking some specifics ;)

That is the most useful sentence ever. If you keep repeating it, everybody will realize that you dont speak the language or you are a retard. My favourite

I say it in English all the time, I must be a retard
