Are These French Drug Dealers the Politest Pushers in the World?

By Gary Cutlack on at

Local drug dealers in the French town of Grenoble are clearly a little friendlier than your average narcotics providers, offering a heartfelt apology to their usual customers when circumstances conspired to stop them dealing in the area.

According to French paper Le Dauphine, local drug dealers kindly posted a tidy laminated notice on a pillar in their usual dealing underground car park trade hangout, saying: "Temporary closure. Please accept our apologies. Reopening soon. Thanks for your understanding."

Local police have apparently been cracking down on dealing in the area, with an officer telling the paper he hopes the suspension of business is more than just temporary. [Le Dauphine via The Register]
