    MORE THAN 1,000 YOUNG PEOPLE TODAY (THURSDAY) DEMONSTRATED OUTSIDE THE DANISH PARLIAMENT BUILDING -- CHRISTIANBORG CASTLE -- IN COPENHAGEN, IN SUPPORT OF FREE USE OF DRUGS. INSIDE THE PARLIAMENT BUILDING, THE DANISH GOVERNMENT WAS CONTINUING A DEBATE ON NARCOTICS, WHILE MORE YOUNG PEOPLE CROWDED THE PUBLIC GALLERY.

    MANY OF THE YOUNG DEMONSTRATORS WERE SMOKING CIGARETTES THAT WERE CLAIMED TO CONTAIN DRUGS. OTHERS SMOKED PIPES.

    THE DEMONSTRATION, WHICH WAS PEACEFUL, WAS CALLED BY A GROUP CALLING THEMSELVES THE NEW SOCIETY.

    BANNERS CALLING FOR FREE USE OF DRUGS WERE CARRIED BY THE YOUNG PEOPLE. ONE BANNER READ "HASH FOREVER".

    THE PARLIAMENTARY DEBATE HAS BEEN ACCOMPANIED BY GROWING PUBLIC DISCUSSION OF DRUG PROBLEMS, WITH NEWSPAPERS AND TELEVISION GIVING INCREASED PUBLICITY TO THE ISSUE.

    THE DEMONSTRATORS CLAIM THAT SOFT DRUGS SUCH AS CANNABIS, ALSO KNOWN AS MARIJUANA, HASHISH AND POT, SHOULD BE RELEASED FROM RESTRICTION.
