We also wanted to study the use of the drug and if there were any differences in both use and attitude according to gender. The study is based on a quantitative study in which a total of 81 questionnaires were handed out at two different schools, and four different classes in Helsingborg. The gender perspectives were used as a theory to explain the possible gender differences. To obtain a holistic view of the young people's attitude to Spice we chose to put the drug in comparison with
Cannabis.
The results of the study showed that about 10 percent of the students
had used Spice and that there were more guys than girls who had used it.
There was a generally negative attitude towards Spice among both
genders. It showed that the students thought that Spice was dangerous and deadly. The students did not want the drug to be legal to consume. But almost 18,5 percent wanted Cannabis to be legalized.
The students that had consumed Spice had also used Cannabis. (Less)
