christinia-removalPolice Director Thorkild Fogde told Politiken newspaper that although hash and marijuana are still being openly sold in Christiania’s Pusher Street, the level has fallen dramatically over the past two months. “We estimate that the trade is reduced to at least one fourth of what it was before the stalls were torn down.” While Fogde touted Copenhagen Police’s success in Pusher Street, critics argue that the cannabis trade has simply spread throughout the rest of Copenhagen. They point to a spate of recent gang-related shootings as proof. (See also: Police bust Hells Angels 'joint factory' in Christiania)
