Нелегальный рынок марихуаны и ее производных в Санкт-Петербурге: участники и их практики
This study is concerned with interrelations between buyers and sellers formed on the illegal market of marijuana in Saint-Petersburg. Our research is based on the analysis of interviews with 11 marijuana users aged from 19 to 24. We found that people consuming drugs systematically are more included in economic transactions on the illegal market than non-regular users. Apart from that, our results show that the market has a difficult structure, which is based on social ties between its participants. But, at the same time, the existing structure allows buyers to act opportunistically and deceive their clients.
