Silly pot dealer

Postby kiwi_in_Oz » Fri Dec 22, 10:58 pm

A hurried drug dealer carrying around 1,000 cannabis joints mistakenly hopped into a police car in the Danish capital thinking it was a taxi. Unlike the man, police officers were “happy” about the mix-up.
It was “a big surprise” for the cannabis dealer in Copenhagen’s weed-friendly commune of Christiania, when he learned the ‘taxi’ he jumped into was actually a police patrol car. Instead of a quick ride home, he was searched. “The police officers were happy to see him, since he was carrying around 1,000 joints,” Copenhagen law enforcement tweeted Thursday.

There wasn’t much to explain, as the man was carrying all of his possessions in his arms, Police Chief Jesper Bangsgaard told Jyllands Posten.

Although police initially tweeted the careless ‘passenger’ would only face a fine, it later amended its statement, saying the man could get a jail term. A maximum sentence may potentially land the man behind bars for eight years.

While the sale of cannabis is illegal in Denmark, Christiania has become famous for its liberal attitude towards marijuana. In a crackdown on the district’s illegal trade, police conducted a number of raids in recent weeks, clearing more than 40 cannabis stalls on the aptly named Pusher Street.

I don't really care if they got rid of the dealers, less of a criminal element to step over when I'm trying to buy the merchandise and Danish craftsmanship. there really is quite a selection of all things cool. They had carved stash cases that resembled books, for one thing. there are a lot of artisans in Christiania and danish carpenters are very good. There's also the restaurants, that I figure will still be around next time I make it there. my feeling from being in Christiania was that the Danes who got picked up could demonstrate their upstanding citizenship and be released. In any case, the whole system in Denmark is enviable. Legalization in the states looks like a flop from where I'm sitting.
