Mikkel Warming (Head councilman at Copenhagen Social Affairs Committee) marijuana quote

"   We are thinking of perhaps 30 to 40 public sales houses, where the people aren’t interested in selling you more, they’re interested in you. Who is it better for youngsters to buy marijuana from? A drug pusher, who wants them to use more, who wants them to buy hard drugs, or a civil servant?
    We want to make it a little bit more concrete what kind of decriminalization we want: should it be a public buying system, should there be an age limit?. We don’t want an Amsterdam model. We want a way to make it legal to import or grow marijuana, so that criminal gangs don’t profit it from it.
    It’s better that the council distributes hashish and not criminals. I hope we get the opportunity to try a new policy because we can’t just continue the current prohibition strategy with hash which is very outdated."
