Drawing on a wealth of empirical facts, together with wide interview testimony and player remark from years of fieldwork carried out in Sweden, the publication debunks the widely-believed delusion that Sweden is a innovative, liberal, inclusive?state. not like its? liberal recognition, Sweden has criminalised using medicines and makes it possible for obligatory therapy for people with drug dependencies. The paintings? argues that Swedish legislation and coverage can't be verified to have lowered drug use as meant, with the legislations used in its place as a method with which to displace those who use medicinal drugs from public areas in Sweden’s towns. And the place the legislation has failed in its ambition to diminish drug use, Swedish legislation and coverage have elevated and exacerbated the issues, risks, and harms that may be linked to it. those who use medications in Sweden adventure massive and endemic?difficulties with healthiness, violence, abuse, and social exclusion, stigma, and discrimination due to Sweden’s drug legislation, guidelines, and discourses.
