Can I use VST plugins for Cubase 7 LE

Hey guys, I am new to Cubase and the whole DAW thing so I was wondering if you could tell me if I can download free VST plugins and drum loops and such if I have Cubase 7 LE. I bought the Focusrite Scarlett 2i2 studio bundle, and Cubase LE came with it. I’ve been trying to open up loops and plugins, but can’t figure it out. If it is possible, do any of you guys know how?
Thanks in advance,

yes all cubase are vst compatible. just take care that your plugins are in the right place : c/program files(x86)/Steinberg/vstplugins for x86 Windows & c/program files/Steinberg/vstplugins for x64 windows
