"Slutreplik on the seventh AP fund's investments in cannabisbolag"
"This is an opinion piece. It is the writer who stands for the views that are put forward in the text, not Against."
"SLUTREPLIK. In a reply to our contribution to the debate about the state of the seventh AP fund should exit its investment in cannabisbolag, describes Adrian Engström cannabis as a panacea on the most part. But, in fact, supports Engström the emerging industry that will do anything to commercialize and capitalize on the vulnerable young brain's susceptibility to drugs. "
"Adrian Engström mixes apples and oranges when he writes that a liberalisation of the cannabis enables the development of our research. The truth is that in the UN drug control conventions is already in a that cannabis may be used for scientific and medical purposes, that is to say that approved drugs. Research into cannabinoids is underway and there are already approved THC-based drugs in health care."
"Research shows, however, that cannabis, in addition to it is addictive, and is clearly linked to schizophrenia and other psychotic diseases, and that it can impair people's cognitive abilities – such as language, memory and orientation. In parts of the world where the use of cannabis is currently rising and is also an increasing demand for treatment of cannabis use and increased problems in the form of more traffic accidents and emergency visits related to cannabis."
"Adrian describes how the two canadian companies that the seventh AP fund has invested money in betting on the medical research surrounding cannabis. "
"What he does not mention is that the same company made big investments to meet the increased demand of cannabisförsäljning to individuals. In one of the company's website is marketed, for example, cannabis products under names like ”Ghost train haze” and ”Blue dream”."
"We share Adrian's vision of a sustainable society, but cannabis is not the industry of the future that creates a socially and environmentally sustainable world. On the contrary, leads a growing cannabisindustri to that more people have the problem and that all the other ports in need of treatment and care."
"the Seventh AP fund revises its list of companies where they do not get to place our pension. We assume that firms that invest in the drugs end up on this list – both based on recommendations from the AP's own ethics council and the fact that Sweden is behind the UN conventions on drugs. "
"But even on the basis that we, along with the other countries in the world, working to achieve the UN global goals for sustainable development, where one of the targets is to strengthen efforts to prevent and treat drug abuse - not to invest in the opposite."
