Argumenter Mot Legalisering Av Marihuana

As a rule, the following reasons for legalization are cited: it breaks the bones of organized crime by undermining the illegal market. If the illegal market disappears, we can ensure that young people do not use cannabis or free up police resources. Legalization also allows for better control of product quality and composition in terms of tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) and cannabidiol (CBD) levels. THC is thought to cause intoxication and psychotic experiences, while CBD appears to have the opposite effect.[13] Other benefits should be possible taxation and the creation of new jobs. Another argument is that cannabis use is already so widespread and creates a relatively decent rush with fewer side effects than many other drugs and that you might as well legalize it. Cannabis has several medical uses, such as relieving anxiety [14] and treating MS spasticity (the only approved indication in Sweden), treatment-resistant childhood epilepsy, chronic pain, and the side effects of chemotherapy [15]. The medical use of cannabis is approved in several countries, but expensive and only by prescription. Legal cannabis would make life easier for these groups of patients. De første studiene derfra kan tyde på at legaliseringen ikke har ført til økt bruk, mener han. The legalization of cannabis has been advocated since the 1960s and, since 2012, liberal drug policies have been increasingly practiced in many parts of the world [1]. Today, eleven U.S.

states, Canada and Uruguay, have legalized cannabis. Luxembourg and Mexico are as follows. Legalization can be implemented at different levels, from allowing cultivation for personal use to states that have monopolies on cannabis production, free competition, free market forces, and corporate governance. Internationally, we also see that there is a powerful lobby working to legalize cannabis and other drugs. The organization Smart Approaches to Marijuana (SAM) reported from the 2014 midterm elections in the United States that supporters of legalization laughed very well. The cannabis legalization wing in Alaska, Oregon and Washington DC spent about $9,000,000, while the anti-legalization wing spent $400,000. The only place where opposing forces were able to raise funds that came closer to the legalization movement was Florida. Then came the legalization proposal, a proposal that was previously considered a “done deal.” The Organized Brotherhood and the illegal marknad quickly survived Trotsky`s legalization. Second, legalization will lead to increased acceptance. Oslo Police Chief Hans Sverre Sjøvold is right when he says it`s about values.

Increased availability leads to increased usage. The drug problem is not alleviated by legalization. Today, there are strong forces, especially outside the establishment of politicians, major newspapers and established researchers, advocating legalization in Sweden [4]. Several major newspapers have also changed their position on a previously restrictive approach to the cannabis issue [5, 6], while Swedes in general seem to be wary of legalisation [7]. However, among young people, mainly men under the age of 30, there is strong support for legalisation, unlike the group of people over 65, where only 10% support legalisation [7]. Arrests for cannabis possession are seen in the United States as a pretext for racism and police harassment of minorities, and any prosecution for possession is considered more harmful than cannabis use itself, which would argue in favor of legalization [17, 18]. The Swedish police defend the criminalisation of cannabis and believe that this is necessary to access and disrupt other criminal activities [19]. Nowhere has legalization been conducted and evaluated through controlled studies, making it difficult to draw clear causal conclusions about the impact of the legislation. Many factors other than legislation influence cannabis use.

Most evidence suggests that use is at a higher level in countries that have decriminalized and legalized cannabis. It is high time that Norwegian politicians opened their eyes to what the legalization of cannabis actually entails. Für ein paar Jahre glaubten die meisten Menschen, dass Kriminalisierung und Bestrafung rusfore preventive seien.
