If you’ve been to Copenhagen, chances are you’ve heard about Freetown Christiania, the hippie-ish enclave where you can buy weed pretty much anywhere. Now, Copenhagen is considering legalizing weed across the city.
The national government still isn’t on board but 44 of the city’s 55 councillors back the idea.
“We have had 50 years of prohibition, and it has not helped anything, so I think that the time must be for us to do something new,” said Gyda Heding, a member of the city council.
