Norway: Odd Push in Drug-Averse Norway: LSD Is O.K.

Tue, 05 May 2015 07:00:00 GMT

New York Times, 05 May 2015 - OSLO - In a country so wary of drug abuse that it limits the sale of aspirin, Pal-Orjan Johansen, a Norwegian researcher, is pushing what would seem a doomed cause: the rehabilitation of LSD. It matters little to him that the psychedelic drug has been banned here and around the world for more than 40 years. Mr. Johansen pitches his effort not as a throwback to the hippie hedonism of the 1960s, but as a battle for human rights and good health.

Aftenposten, 25 Mar 2008 - I'm writing about the story Cannabis suspects pack jails.

Norway: In Scenic Norway, Fearful Death Scene of Addicts

Thu, 08 Aug 2002 07:00:00 GMT

New York Times, 08 Aug 2002 - OSLO, Aug. 2 - It is a sunny morning, and the Oslo Fjord dances with reflections. Festive pennants flutter from a departing North Sea ferry, bicyclists pedal past the colonnade of the stock exchange building and sleek trams glide by, filled with downtown workers. Oslo, capital of oil-rich Norway, is springing to daily life, but there is little movement from shabby clutches of people who have also become part of this harborside landscape. They slump in a row by a derelict corrugated tin warehouse and lie curled up on the surrounding docks. Their bodies are emaciated, and their faces are as spent and vacant as any that Edvard Munch, the Norwegian artist of angst, ever painted. Many are asleep, others nod their heads listlessly.

Manila Times, 09 Jul 2002 - OSLO - Kim is a heroin addict in oil-rich Norway, ranked the world's best place to live. But on the streets of Oslo, the 26-year-old's chances of dying of a drug overdose are greater than in any other European city. In a country with one of the most generous welfare systems in the world thanks to North Sea oil wealth, Norwegians are more likely to die from drugs than in a car accident.

Norway: Web: Commission Set To Call For Decriminalization

Fri, 25 Jan 2002 08:00:00 GMT

Aftenposten, 25 Jan 2002 - A government-appointed commission will soon set off some political dynamite, reports newspaper Aftenposten. The commission recommends decriminalizing narcotics use and possession, liberalizing pornography rules and raising the blood-alcohol limit allowed for driving a car. The proposals are sure to spur heated debate among politicians who appointed the commission back in 1994 to "modernize" Norwegian laws. The commission's conclusions are due to be turned over to Justice Minister Odd Einar Dorum in March. The commission, according to Aftenposten, believes only the sale of narcotics should be penalized. Both usage and possession would be allowed under the commission's proposal.
