Going to Amsterdam in Dec. Questions

I'll be in Amsterdam in December. I've read several pages trying to find info on using ATM cards in Amsterdam. I heard that cards with the Maestro and Cirrus logo work. My debit card doesn't have either, it has Plus, Star and Interlink logos on it. Will it work in Amsterdam? It is a US debit card. I don't want to arrive carrying wads of cash.

I'll be staying near Vondel Park/ leidesplein, where are the nearest supermarkets? Also is the Albert Cuyp market within walking distance? Is there a Post Office in that area?

I'm planning to visit the coffeeshops and I am wondering if it's okay to take the stuff back to my hotel to smoke?
