  • Clashing Perspectives: Cannabis Users and Swedish Drug Policy

    Josefin Månsson Mats Ekendahl Patrik Karlsson

    Chapter from the book: Tham, H. 2021. Retreat or Entrenchment?: Drug Policies in the Nordic Countries at a Crossroads.


    In a Swedish study treatment staff, youth cannabis users and adult cannabis users are interviewed about the risks of taking drugs. They all mobilize evidence-based arguments for their standpoints but arrive at quite different conclusions. Drug policy becomes “a matter of concern rather than a matter of facts”.
