This year the chair of the Green Party, Claudia Roth, has caused a bit of a stir by calling it "the biggest open drug scene in the world." In an interview with an Austrian paper she argued:
In a country which in the next few weeks will host the biggest open drug scene in the world, i.e. the Munich Oktoberfest, a liberalisation of soft drugs is sorely needed.
I did so want to post this picture of Ms Roth. She doesn't seem bothered by the lack of a girly glass.
