Sammanfattning: Cannabis use is illegal according to swedish drugpolicy. Self-reported data shows that cannabis is the most common drug used by adolescents in Sweden. Among results from previous studies several findings indicate a strong correlation between cannabis use during adolscence and failure in school, poor parental ties and criminal behaviour. This study used a school-based sample of adolescents in Stockholm. The main focus of this study was to examine if social factors linked to Hirschi's social bonding theory affect if adolescents used cannabis. Results from a logistic regression analysis partly supported Hirschi's theory. The results suggested that cigarettesmoking and alcohol intoxication are the two strongest factors which affect if adolescents use cannabis. Findings also indicated that young cannabis users tend to have friends who use illegal drugs.
