'I did drugs and Sweden should get real': Pirate Party founder
The Pirate Party founder believes Sweden's approach to drugs in general is a tool of aggression for the police.
"What we're seeing here is a ban on eating or drinking unhealthily. And it gives police a very aggressive tool to use on people they don't like, and we've seen it being seriously abused over the past several years. We believe that we have to start somewhere when it comes to questioning the doctrine," he explained.
He said that police "arrest anyone on any bullshit suspicion" - often just to harass them.
