Policy: – Legalization does not happen with us in government, says Emilie Enger Mehl (Sp). VG.

Earlier on Thursday, Unge Høyre leader Ola Svenneby went and stated that they want hashish to be sold at Vinmonopolet or pharmacies, instead of it being sold by criminals on the street.

– Hashish or cocaine is completely out of the question at Vinmonopolet. It is naive to think that this will stop the gangs from making money from drugs. One thing is hashish, but we are constantly seeing new and stronger substances entering the market. Hash is only a small part of that market, says Mehl.

She is supported by Frp leader Sylvi Listhaug, who strongly disagrees with the proposals.

– It is a naive hippie dream to think that gang crime will disappear if you legalize hashish and deprioritize the police, says Listhaug.
