The Amsterdam Cannabis College has been educating people since 1998.

In 1997, philanthropic Dutchman Henk Poncin and a few members of a group known as the Green Prisoners Release created a public information centre devoted to all the beneficial aspects of the beautiful Cannabis sativa L. plant. After a year of hard work and renovation, the new information centre and its flourishing organic cannabis garden were housed in a monument-status canal house in the heart of Amsterdam.
