Residents in Denmark’s alternative enclave Christiania fenced off an area known as Pusher Street, from where cannabis is usually sold. All entrances to the area were closed off with a two-metre high black fence. A woman told a reporter from the news agency that Pusher Street was “closed for today”. A nearby sign ready that “Pusher Street will be closed for the next couple of days. We will reopen a more pleasant street”. Sale of cannabis is to be discussed by residents in the alternative enclave, addressing differences of opinion as to who is permitted to sell the substance.
