England’s legendary soccer hooligans may have meet their match… From The Sun:
England fans will be allowed to smoke dope before Sunday’s crunch clash with France – to keep them calm. Cops in Lisbon plan to crack down on drunk supporters while turning a blind eye to those spotted puffing on a spliff.
Pot-smoking fans have been assured they will not be arrested, cautioned – or even have their drugs confiscated. Last night experts said the Portuguese police “Here We Blow” policy would reduce chances of a punch-up between rival fans.
Alan Buffry of the Legalise Cannabis Alliance said: “If people are drinking they lose control, if they smoke cannabis they don’t. Alcohol makes fans fight. But cannabis smokers will be shaking hands and singing along together.”
Dutch police used a similar policy in Euro 2000 and England
