christiania-hashDenmark's governing party has refused calls to crack down on Pusher Street, the open cannabis market that has long operated in Christiania, Copenhagen's hippie 'free town'. The opposition Social Democrats and the populist Danish People’s Party proposed that Denmark's police clears out the dealers who operate in the area once and for all. "It makes no sense for us to have places in Denmark where law and order is not respected," said Trine Bramsen, spokesperson for the Social Democrats. "We want to ensure that we can put an end to the open cannabis trade that takes place every day in Christiania." (See also: Copenhagen politico disagrees with his own party on Christiania)
