A city where stupid Americans go to smoke pot. If you are armed and see an American smoking pot in public, shoot him without reservation. He does not deserve to live.
American Tourist: Hey, guys, I've got some weed. I'm so cool that I'll smoke it in public just because I can!
Amsterdam Citizen: Good for you. When are you going to leave?
