Hanna Wagenius, chair of Sweden's Centre Party's youth wing, thinks that Sweden should take its lead from several places around the world which have legalized cannabis, such as the Netherlands and a number of US states. Sweden has a highly regulated sale of liquor, with government-owned chain Systembolaget (literally translated as 'the System Company') being the only retail store allowed to sell alcoholic beverages that contain more than 3.5 percent alcohol. Wagenius has something similar in mind for cannabis. (See also: Center Party youth vote to legalize marijuana)
