Adolescents and Cannabis : a questionnaire study on third year students in high school in a medium-sized municipality (English)
Abstract [sv]

Ungdomar sägs idag vara allt mer positivt inställda till cannabis och att deras cannabisbruk ökar. Detta rapporteras mycket i media men det finns även med i ett flertal forskningsartiklar. Det som beskylls ligga till grund för denna positiva cannabissyn menas vara ungdomarnas mediekonsumtion och ökade internet användande. Ungdomarnas cannabis syn kan vara viktig att undersöka för att kunna arbeta bättre preventivt.

Syftet med denna studie är att undersöka hur ungdomar ser på cannabisbruk och hur olika variabler i deras liv gör att de skiljer sig åt i sitt cannabisbruk. Undersökningen genomfördes med hjälp av en kvantitativ enkät som delades ut till ca:30 % av tredjeårseleverna på en gymnasieskola. Enkäten tolkades efter insamlingen med hjälp av en korstabellanalys och för att se om det fanns något beroende mellan de olika variablerna så användes chi2-test. Studien visade att män och ungdomar som tidigare brukat cannabis har en positivare syn på cannabis än kvinnor och de som inte hade brukat cannabis
