hash-catch-denmarkPolice in Copenhagen have cannabis users in their crosshairs as they struggle to close the illegal drug trade in Copenhagen commune Christiania. Task Force Pusher Street, the police’s Christiania unit, has been active since September 2012 and claims to have cut the cannabis trade there by 30 percent and announced that they intend to step up efforts against cannabis. Copenhagen mayor Frank Jensen said that he would rather see the sale of cannabis legalised.
