Cannabis Culture Headquarters
For arguments in support of legalization, duck into the friendly shop and offices of the BC Marijuana Party, in a small pocket of the city sometimes called 'Vansterdam.' With books, hemp clothing and associated paraphernalia, this is the place to make some new, like-minded buddies during your visit. Also, nip next door to the New Amsterdam Cafe, a popular herbal smoking room.
