Is the grass greener on the other side? : a litterature-study about youths attitudes towards cannabis (English)
Abstract [sv]

I föreliggande studie har 18 artiklar granskats och analyserats när det kommer till cannabisanvändning och ungdomars attityder till drogen i svensk kontext. Detta har gjorts i form av en litteraturstudie. Syftet var att undersöka vilka attityder svenska ungdomar uppvisar till cannabis och hur dessa attityder förhåller sig till Howard Parkers normaliseringsteori. Resultatet har strukturerats upp efter fyra av normaliseringsteorins fem dimensioner. Slutsatserna som kan dras utifrån studiens resultat är att det finns ett ökat ifrågasättande av svensk narkotikapolitik, som i sin tur har bidragit till mer liberala attityder hos ungdomar när det kommer till cannabis. Hälften av svenska skolungdomar har inte heller fått någon undervisning i skaderiskerna när det kommer till användning av tobak, alkohol och narkotika. Detta kan vara en direkt effekt eller en indikation på varför ungdomar visar upp mer positiva attityder till narkotika. Även om andelen cannabisanvändare inte ökar i Sverige, så kan det konstateras att frekvensen av cannabisanvändningen har ökat markant den senaste tiden.

Abstract [en]

In this study, 18 articles have been reviewed and analyzed when it comes to cannabis use and the attitudes of adolescents to the drug in Swedish context. This has been done in the form of a literature study. The purpose was to examine the attitudes of Swedish adolescents to cannabis and how these attitudes relate to Howard Parker´s normalization theory. The result has been structured after four of the normalization theory´s five dimensions. The conclusions that can be drawn from the study´s results are that there is an increased questioning of Swedish drug policy, which in turn has contributed to more liberal attitudes in adolescents and when it comes to cannabis. Half of Swedish schoolchildren have also not recieved any education in the risks of harm when it comes to the use of tobacco, alcohol and drugs. This could be a direct effect or an indication of why adolescents show more positive attitudes towards drugs. Although the proportion of cannabis users does not increase in Sweden, it can be stated that the frequency of cannabis use has increased significantly recently.
