Saw this on Channels
After smoking some California weed in last few months and seeing variety on Medicinal menus makes me wonder, especially about experimenting with crossing, etc.
Has California taken the lead?

Shit man....................ok, story - went to Kloggie-Land in '07-'08 (and many years before) - I can never remember which, ok ? - and stayed at WWW's in Haarlem, brilliant, far out and lovely. Went to the 'Dam and checked out this 'Cup' thing, they wanted about 30 or 50 or 75 euro (money) to get in the 'festi' bit and my thought was - I can get the nicest grass and hash in the West if I find a local Coffee Shop and get my face on backwards, so the money I saved I spent in the 'Dam and Haarlem CS and met a load of peeps @ 4:20.
It's nice to meet up with peeps, it's nice that peeps want to grow excellent shit to 'serve' to peeps and Coffee Shops are an integral part of toking, yeah the 'CC' is the usual bullshit, but what the f@ck, if we're gonna toke then lets have fun while we do it, let's grow the best that we can (which every one should do) and have fun judging it - lets go get stoned   anywhere in the world we can

Oh yes, Willie Wortals was excellent - bom Siva

Hmmm... Sometimes I wonder what people really expect from Amsterdam.  For me I have always been able to buy good weed that's clean and powerful enough....I cant say I have ever gone to the Dam and not been wasted...which surely is the objective.

Maybe I am off the hip scene but to me good weed is good weed it doesn't matter really who's is the best and absolute strongest.

I also like the atmosphere and coffee shop scene in Holland.  I don't know what it is like in California but I don't think the USA in general is quite ready for a couple of hundred coffeshops opening up every day to sell pot and IMO that's why people go to Amsterdam.

If I could go out on a Friday night and smoke decent pot in coffeeshops in my town I don't suppose I would fly to Amsterdam to do it either.

I must agree that I am having a rethink of Amsterdam for all the wrong reasons perhaps.  Certainly no difficulty in finding travel companions, any smoker I know would love to go since few have been. When I first discovered Amsterdam it was very much a novelty, Disneyland for adults. But like Disneyland after 8 or 9 visits its lost a bit of luster for me I regret to say. Locally I find incredible quality gear which is equal to almost anything in Amsterdam, usually at the same or lesser price. The selection changes often and I find its not hard to have 2 or 3 different strains on hand at any given time. My contacts often call me with the latest offering before I need any but they are on my speed dial list as well and always make home deliveries within a day. Add in my own personal pub where anything goes, a volcano on the bar, smoke what you wish, the kitchen is always open, and you can watch anything you want as loud as you wish anytime at all. Somehow the idea of a 9 hour flight costing over $1K with $200 a day for accommodations makes it hard to justify a visit to a country where the primary objective is just to get high. No question the atmosphere of the endless list of coffeeshops and the glitz of the RLD are fun, but after a few trips it does get a bit boring IMO. Its still heavenly but not what it once was for me.

Hey the invite is open anytime you want to come to Canada. The scenery is outstanding, the beer is cold, and the girls are hot.  

Unless you ski you may wish to postpone until spring or summer but rest assured a warm welcome awaits.  Anytime!

A good reason to visit the Vancouver 2010 Winter Olympics too. The finest bud should be in plentiful supply. We get daily torch relay updates, the torch looks like a poorly rolled spliff.

I guess it is very different for us as it is so close...and cheap to get there.

What I like about Amsterdam and the Netherlands is that you can do what you got to do, like a normal human being. What is that I smell? It is the scent of liberty--of respect for others way of living. You don't have to hide. We can find weed elsewhere, but tolerance and respect are in short supply. Give me a sunny spot at Dutch Flowers or the friendliness of Basjoe's or the intimacy of Tweede Kamer!

Ahh, Tweede Kamer, my favorite shop from last April.
Only a short distance from our apartment and the first c.s. my daughter was ever in.
Memories.

Nice to see you Optimo

As I've stated on every other forum I've posted this on, I did not post this to start a war between countries.
Am just curious to see how people feel about this.
I have been smoking California MMJ the last few months and I have to admit there is a very large variety of smoke and it is as good as any thing I have smoked in Amsterdam.
If marijuana ever gets legalized here in the states I can see it becoming a very relaxed atmosphere in some places, just as Optimo describes, specifically in places like California where there is already a very layed back vibe, but this will take time.
( I may be in my grave by then but ..... )

I think it will always be a fun trip to the Netherlands but considering the total cost to visit there from the states it may be more cost effective in the future to stay close to home . My state Rhode Island will soon have its first shop and from what I see of the California shops and dont forget those in  Colorado , having that availability of shops is  like owning a cow and your addicted to Milk .Dont forget here , so far you do need an Medical Card .
Will I visit Holland in the future ,I probably will . Then again Colorado is only 2,000 miles away and they will accept my card from my state in their shops. Decisions  \ Decisions
