Saturday on second of may, 10.000 copenhageners participated in tandem together with other 76 nations and 848 cities all around the earth at Marijuana Global March.
Right now weed industry it’s the most emerging market world wide. Alaska just became the third US state to legalize the recreational use of marijuana for adults. More than 20 US states allow some form of medical marijuana, and last year Uruguay became the first nation to create a legal marijuana market.
How weed works in Denmark and infamous free town Christiania
In Denmark weed is tolerated, if you get caught with less then 10 grams and it’s your first attempt you risk just an advertisement.
It’s interesting to analyse the situation here in Denmark. Christiania it’a a former military area which junkies took over in 1971 and formed a community. They broke down the fence to take over parts of the unused area as a playground for their children. It’s an enclave right in the middle of Copenhagen which started numerous dispute with Danish government because it’s hash trade and criminality. The legal status of the community have led to conflicts, police raids and negotiations which are ongoing.
Together with with 2 friends we followed the march and filmed a street interview to understand better the problem in Denmark. I like to be surrounded by these unconventional and extravagant people. Let’s see how it went.
