Guitars, pugs and drugs. Three things that define my current lifestyle.
As a spokesperson regarding drug politics in the Swedish Pirate Party, I specialise in cannabis-related questions. I want to evaluate the potential harm that comes from the criminalisation of drugs, as well as challenge the way in which we look at drug users. Fighting the stigma that is forced upon drug users is an everyday battle against politicians, police, lobbying organisations and citizens.
I believe in the decriminalisation and control of drugs.
I also created one of Sweden's very few opinion-neutral platforms for information regarding cannabis. It’s in Swedish, and you find it at http://snilletjohan.se/cannabis.
As a former rock musician wannabe, I've played guitar and bass in bands such as Savage Heart, Solaris and Chugger. My love for guitars and metal music grew when I discovered bands such as Ministry, Type O Negative, Sisters of Mercy, Pearl Jam, Pantera and Ozzy. I'm the proud owner of a white Charvel Star guitar, made in the US.
I consider myself a father to my 5-year-old pug Luna, who I love very much. <3
