SKY (http://www.sky.org) - Suomen Kannabis Yhdistys or The Finnish Cannabis Association (FCA (http://www.sky.org/julkaisut/eindex.html)) eller Finlands Cannabisförening (FCF (http://www.sky.org/julkaisut/sindex.html)) oder Finnische Cannabis Vereinigung (FCV (http://www.sky.org/julkaisut/tiedote/skysaksa.html)).

The FCA started operating in 1990 and was officially established in 1991. Its purpose is to influence the Finnish legislation so that adults could legally use, obtain and cultivate cannabis for personal use. The FCA also studies the use of cannabis in different cultures during different times.

Finnish Cannabis Association - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (552 words)
The Finnish Cannabis Association (FCA) (Finnish: Suomen kannabisyhdistys, commonly referred to by the acronym SKY) is a Finnish non-governmental organisation whose purpose is to advocate legalisation or decriminalisation of cannabis.
Reasons for this include the fact that the use of cannabis has generally been much less common in Finland than in other EU countries, and that the tradition of "drug education", based mainly in intimidation and modeled after practices from the United States and Sweden, is still quite strong in schools and the media.
According to the traditional Finnish mindset, it is preferable to lose control with alcohol or to even use it excessively over long periods of time, than to experiment with cannabis, which is seen both as very dangerous in itself and as a "gateway drug".
