Upper secondary school students' attitude towards marijuana. : Perceived self-esteem and perceived sense of coherence (English)
Abstract [sv]

Denna undersökning gjordes på grund av dagens uppmärksammande av användningen av drogen marijuana och syntetiska motsvarigheter bland ungdomar. Även den legalisering som skett i andra länder skapade ett intresse för undersökningen. En enkätstudie genomfördes bland gymnasieelever, årskurs tre i Västra Götaland. Studien hade 57 respondenter med en medelålder på 18 år, 33% kvinnor och 67% män. Studien visade på att de manliga gymnasieeleverna i undersökningen tenderade att ha en mer positiv attityd till drogen marijuana. Attityd till marijuana hade även en positiv korrelation med självkänsla. Studien fann ingen statistisk signifikant korrelation mellan känsla av sammanhang (KASAM) och attityd till marijuana. En positiv statistisk signifikant korrelation fanns dock mellan KASAM och självkänsla vilket är i linje med tidigare forskning. Sammanfattningsvis visar resultatet att elever i årskurs tre på gymnasiet med högre självkänsla även tenderar till att vara mer positivt inställda i sin attityd till drogen marijuana.

Abstract [en]

This survey was made on the basis of today's attention of the use of the drug marijuana and its synthetic counterparts among young people. Also, the liberalization that has occurred in other countries created an interest to do the survey. A questionnaire study was conducted among third graders in upper secondary school in the region of Västra Götaland. The study had 57 respondents with a mean age of 18 years and the gender distribution was 33 % female and 67 % male. The study showed that male upper secondary students' tended to have a more accepting attitude towards the drug marijuana. This attitude also had a positive correlation with self-esteem. The study found no statistically significant correlation between sense of coherence (SOC) and attitude toward marijuana. SOC and self-esteem was however positively correlated, which is in line with previous research. In summary, students in the third grade of upper secondary school with higher self-esteem also tended to be more accepting in their attitude toward the drug marijuana.
