Attitudes and use of cannabis among students at Linnaeus University : A quantitative study (English)
Abstract [en]

The aim of this study was to explore the students’ use of and attitudes towards cannabis at Linnaeus University. Social psychology and gender perspective was used as theories to explain the use and attitudes among the students’ and how the use and attitudes could change through social influence. The study operates from a quantitative approach and is based on an online survey which includes answers from 126 respondents. The empirical result was coded in the computer program SPSS and has been analyzed through social psychology, gender perspective and against prior studies. The result shows that the majority of the respondents never had used cannabis and that the main reason for that is that the respondents are not interested to use cannabis. Among the respondents who used cannabis the last twelve months we found that the majority came in contact with cannabis through their friends the first time and that they most usually did consume cannabis together with friends. Finally we found that almost nine out of ten respondents experienced that they never got the information about Linnaeus University’s alcohol and drug policy at the introduction to their studies at the university.
