IT'S OK TO SMOKE DOPE, ENGLAND FANS TOLD

Paul Kelso in Lisbon

Friday June 11, 2004

The Guardian

Portuguese police officers will turn a blind eye to England

supporters who openly smoke cannabis during Euro 2004, having decided

that a stoned crowd is easier to control than a drunk one.

Lisbon police confirmed yesterday that England fans will not be

arrested for puffing on joints on the streets of the Portuguese

capital, following a recommendation from the Dutch authorities

responsible for policing the English during Euro 2000.

Four years ago England's match in Eindhoven, ironically against

Portugal, passed off peacefully as many supporters took advantage of

the Netherlands' liberal drugs laws. By contrast the game against

Germany in the Belgian town of Charleroi was marred by violence, much

of it fuelled by alcohol.

Portugal has similarly relaxed legislation to the Dutch and the

authorities hope it will help them police the 50,000 supporters

expected to arrive in the country in the next few days.

Possession of small amounts of cannabis is not illegal in Portugal

but, technically, consumption is. However, having liaised with the

Dutch, police will not act except in extreme circumstances.

Isabel Canelas, a spokeswoman for the Portuguese police, said

cannabis would be a low priority during the tournament. "Everyone

knows that here everyone can smoke. The police are doing another kind

of job and their priorities are different.

"We won't be hiding behind doors waiting for someone to smoke a

joint. We have to use common sense. If people are smoking but not

kicking each other, not beating each other, and not making a problem,

why on earth would an officer go and ask 'Is that cannabis?'

"If you are quietly smoking and a police officer is 10 metres away,

what's the big risk in your behaviour? I'm not going to tap you on

the shoulder and ask 'What are you smoking?' if you are posing no

menace to others. Our priority is alcohol.

"Of course, if people cause a problem through using drugs and become

a menace to others, police will be expected to take action. It would

be totally different when a police officer realises there's someone

trying to sell."

Visitors to Lisbon do not have to try too hard to buy the drug. The

city does not have "coffee shops" in the Dutch style, but tourists

are likely to be offered cannabis by street vendors.

Organisers have not restricted the amount of alcohol on sale during

the tournament despite the Football Association's concerns. Beer

costs just 66p a glass and will be freely available around stadiums

and at big screen locations.

Eindhoven police spokesman Johann Beelan said cannabis was a positive

influence on public order at Euro 2000. "Cannabis ... was part of the

conditions which meant everyone had a good time," he said.

British police estimated around 3,000 English supporters had arrived

in Portugal by last night, but there have been no reports of disorder

and no arrests.

SeRia bom uma polícia assim aqui no Brasil, neh?

Vamos celebrar a vitória parcial do euro contra o dollar, pois sabemos que a economia tb ''controla'' a cultura, e com a cultura européia deixando suas raízes por aqui quem sabe não haveria mais uma ajuda para uma política de BOM-SENSO a favor da cannabis...

Acho que não vai precisar nem perguntar... só pela maresia tá arriscado o cop saber até o tipo de erva que esta sendo queimada...

A bronca mesmo é o Alcool, os caras quando bebem, perdem a linha; Eu nunca vi maconheiro dando vexame em público.

Ponto a favor, mais um exemplo a ser seguido e mostrar que existe uma diferença abissal entre consumidores de alcool e cannabis.

Na rua nao... acho q nao precisa chegar a esse ponto, eh muita ilusão... nem na Holanda pode fumar na rua, imagina se do nada isso acontece aki... acho q vai mais uma década ou mais...

Agora, deixar de ser crime vc consumir em locais apropriados, cultivar para consumo próprio 2 ou 3 pézinhos, seria muito bem vindo agora... ;)
