The legal status of ayahuasca in the Netherlands has been unclear for a long time. Only the Santo Daime church got permission to use their sacrament based on the right to freedom of religion.
In February 2018 the Court of Amsterdam pronounced a remarkable statement, which – for now? – makes ayahuasca illegal following the opium law. I studied the new situation and wrote about it on the Azarius website. You can read more in my article ‘Ayahuasca (for now) illegal in the Netherlands‘.
