"Replica from the lawyers on the Swedish drug policy"
"This is an opinion piece. It is the writer who stands for the views that are put forward in the text, not Against."
"REPLICA. On 30 January 2019 argued lawyer, Sargon De Basso convention centre and 17 other lawyers for the legalization of the use of all controlled drugs, ie everything from cannabis to heroin."
"the Arguments are general in nature and has long been of interest groups that lobbied for the legalization of drug use. "
"You are confusing the serious abusers and the ”rekreationsknarkare”, and the consequence will be a legal opportunity for the latter's desire to use drugs freely."
"the Intention to collect the lawyers behind the message must be assumed to be to give it some weight through the expertise and legal argumentation. "
"But debattinlägget came instead to be seen as a purely political statement for the debaters call a humane and pragmatic drug policy."
"the Concept of ”humanism” lacks a legal definition. The term has no legal meaning and connection. The concept of ”human rights” in contrast, is concrete and has its counterpart in the justice field. The concept is provided in detail in the nine global conventions on everything from racial discrimination to the rights of persons with disabilities. "
"Human rights is legally binding minimum standards."
"Just the drugs mentioned in the Convention's article 33, according to which all states have an obligation to protect children against being exposed for drug use and management. The article also refers to the UN three Conventions according to which only medical use of drugs is permitted. "
"Sweden has thus committed itself to criminalizing the private use of drugs not prescribed by a physician."
"Addicts are in need of care, but prevent the judicial process is really a vårdinsats? Of course not. The court uses a framework that acknowledges that it shall be a vårdpåföljd and in some cases with a very extensive vårdinsats with initial stay at the clinic which will then be followed up in the outpatient sector. "
"The type of punishment is carried out in cooperation with the municipal social services, and Correctional probation."
"We agree that health care and social services, efforts can and should be developed for those engaged in an active addiction. But there is not any reason to fear that the work of the police against drugs is taking resources from patient care. "
"also, There is no support for the conclusion that the criminalisation (where a moderate financial penalty is the sentence) would stand in the way of to reach the and drug addicts."
"on the Contrary, we believe that the law can provide the tools to discover and reach people that are otherwise at risk of abuse. It also serves as a norm and guide to what is accepted by society and what is not."
"Society is facing serious challenges, but to decriminalize the use of drugs would be like trying to save a sinking ship by cutting the mast. However, it is not the tilt of the weight that constitutes the threat to the ship without all the leaks in the hull."
