Decriminalise cannabis: Danish politician


Larsen made the suggestion in a new book in which he discusses the merits of decriminalising both cannabis and class A drugs, newspaper Information reports. The MP, who is the chair for the Social Democrats’ parliamentary group, in the book calls efforts to control hard and soft recreational drugs over the last 50 years a “complete fiasco”, according to the newspaper. “Everything we’ve done in the last 50 years has been in vain,” Larsen told Information. “There are not fewer people using or abusing drugs. Every school child knows where they can get hash. “It has served no other purpose than to send a whole lot of people to prison, and the volume of resources society has spent on it has exploded,” the MP continued. Sass Larsen suggested that the state take control of cannabis sales while users of hard drugs should not be punished. Decriminalise cannabis: Danish politician
