Review of Swedish Drug Policy 2003 Stockholm University, Department of Criminology.

Sweden  has  assumed  a unique position  among  European nations, adopting  a total
prohibition  model and emphasising a restrictive approach.  At the official  level, Swedish
policy has been presented as a success both in relation to the less restrictive policy previously  followed in Sweden, and to the policies of other countries.
 
The drugs question has once again become topical since levels of drug use have risen
sharply  following  an earlier decline. The Government  has appointed a special co? ordinator on drugs issues, who is now  working under the banner “Mobilisation  against
drugs”.  The  Government  is also  expected to furnish a large amount of money for this  mobilisation.
 
A number  of  academics  and researchers have long  been  critical of various  aspects of   Swedish drug policy. At the same  time,  the debate surrounding this issue has been polarised and in a state of deadlock, which has made it very difficult for those with alternative viewpoints to make themselves heard. In the context of the new  and more
open situation prevailing at the present time,  some researchers wish here to present
their views  on Swedish drug policy.
