Amsterdam for tourists: What's legal?

The most powerful type of "magic mushrooms," containing psilocybin, were made illegal in 2008, but authorities say they will not prosecute anyone holding very small quantities. Hashish is also in a gray area, up to each municipality to decide. Not everyone likes this openness. Weed tourism is controversial in some circles and there are worries that lax laws attract more than just the tattoos and scraggly beard crowd, encouraging drug traffickers to enter the market. Weed aficionados across parts of the world panicked a couple of years ago when a conservative government announced plans to stem drug tourism , partly as a result of friction with neighboring countries.

Now the Anne Frank House has developed an app that links the past with the present and offers locals a whole new perspective on their own city. Since 1960, the Anne Frank Museum has been telling the history of the Holocaust through the personal accounts of the young Jewish girl who hid from the Nazis within its walls and was ultimately murdered in a concentration camp.

The museum's digital media manager, Ita Amahorseija, says the aim of the app was to make Anne Frank's story relevant for the people living in Amsterdam today. What we wanted was to get people to make a connection between the past and present.
