The ACD is big, covering over 1400 cannabusinesses, past and present, throughout the Netherlands. Each shop has a mini site dedicated to it within the Directory and there are many ways to navigate through it.
In the middle at the top of every page is a heading indicating which branch of the Directory it's on. Links here lead back along the branch and, when you've scrolled down the page a bit, a shortcut back to the top.
From this list of towns you can open a list of the shops in any town. A to Z lists group shops alphabetically. More indexes here.
To reduce initial loading times, especially of maps and menus, the information about each shop is divided across tabs. The first tab always shows the particulars such as contact details. Further tabs may include reviews, maps, cannabis menus and picture history.
Most important are, of course, the Coffeeshops. These are cannabis shops or dispensaries. Alongside them are supporting businesses, such as bars where you can consume cannabis and shops selling bongs, seeds, herbal highs and so on.
Past, Present and Future
There is plenty of up-to-date information here about the current shops. There is also a lot of historical information. The ACD has been running since the 1990s and features many shops that no longer exist and pictures and discussion of current shops through time. There is even one future shop, Best Friends Zuidoost, which hasn't opened yet!
A Coffeeshop licence applies to an address rather than a proprietor and many shops have changed name and ownership in the past. The ACD documents the story of each premises.
