Sweden’s History of Restrictive Substance Use Policies
excerpt on Journal of Drug Issues 29(3), 511-528, 1999
Boekhout van Solinge, Tim, ”Dutch Drug Policy in a European Context”

”Between 1917 and 1955 Sweden had an alcohol rationing system, and even today embraces a comparatively restrictive alcohol policy. This tradition makes a restrictive drug policy a logical option. The current alcohol policy is based on the “total consumption” model, which holds that the more people use alcohol, the more they will abuse it and the greater the total harm caused by alcohol will be. The implication for policy, then, is to limit alcohol use through the instruments of price and availability.”
