A majority of Danes believe that sales of cannabis should be controlled by the state, according to a Gallup poll for metroXpress.
According to the poll, 53 per cent of those asked fully agreed or agreed that cannabis should be state-controlled; 22 per cent had no view on the issue while 23 per cent disagreed or fully disagreed.
“There are dangers connected to cannabis. But we often forget that most Danes’ cannabis consumption is intermittent and recreational and has no negative social or psychological influence on them,” says Narcotics Researcher Jakob Dumant of Aarhus University.
Red Green Justice Spokeswoman Pernille Skipper says the result of the poll should make the government consider legalising cannabis.
