Bulgaria's police managed to stop a crowd of about 400 people, who wanted to stage a rally in support of the legalization of marihuana on Saturday.

The demonstrators gathered in the centre of Sofia and demanded to be allowed to carry out their ideas.

The police broke up the demonstration planned, as there was no official permission got by the Capital's Municipality.

The leader of the initiative has voluntarily withdrawn, the authorities reported.
