OECD: Morale – Taking Soft Drug

In World Values Survey, this question was asked:

Justifiable: Taking soft drug

However, only selected OECD countries were asked in the questionaire. The answer in the scale form was given, running from 1-10, 1 being “never justifiable” and 10 being “always justifiable”. The mean score given from all the participants in the respective country is shown in the graphs below:

Surprisingly people in UK are more okayed than Netherlands on the justification of taking soft drug, which as far as I know, only Netherland legalized soft drugs like cannabis or LSD. Or rather it can be said I am a bit surprised to find out from this questionare is that why there is still quite a number of Dutch people think that soft drug is not “always justifiable” even after legalization. However, bear in mind that this questionare was conducted in 1999-2000 period.

The other countries which have relatively relaxed opinion on taking soft drug are: Greece, Denmark and Luxembourg. The countries which have the lowest score on this issue included Hungary, Czech Rep. and Finland.
