Young cannabis users : A quantitative study on the importance of social factors for adolescents cannabis use in Stockholm (Swedish)
Abstract [en]

Cannabis use is illegal according to swedish drugpolicy. Self-reported data shows that cannabis is the most common drug used by adolescents in Sweden. Among results from previous studies several findings indicate a strong correlation between cannabis use during adolscence and failure in school, poor parental ties and criminal behaviour. This study used a school-based sample of adolescents in Stockholm. The main focus of this study was to examine if social factors linked to Hirschi's social bonding theory affect if adolescents used cannabis. Results from a logistic regression analysis partly supported Hirschi's theory. The results suggested that cigarettesmoking and alcohol intoxication are the two strongest factors which affect if adolescents use cannabis. Findings also indicated that young cannabis users tend to have friends who use illegal drugs.

Abstract [sv]

Att bruka cannabis är illegalt enligt svensk narkotikapolitik. Självrapporterad data visar att cannabis är det mest vanliga narkotikaklassade preparatet som används bland ungdomar i Sverige. Av tidigare studier indikerar resultat att det finns ett samband mellan cannabisbruk i ungdomen och misslyckand i skolan, svag anknytning till föräldrar och brottsligt beteende. Denna studie använde ett skolbaserat urval av ungdomar i Stockholms stad. Huvudfokus i studien var att undersöka om faktorer, kopplade till Hirschis sociala bandteori, påverkar om ungdomar använder cannabis. Resultat från en logistisk regressionsanalys gav delvis stöd åt Hirschis teori. Resultaten indikerar att rökning av tobak och berusningsdrickande är de faktorer som mest påverkar att ungdomar använder cannabis. Resultaten indikerar också på att unga som använt cannabis tenderar att ha vänner som använder illegala narkotiska preparat.
