Drop-off drug distribution: Why users choose to source illegal drugs from delivery dealers

Publikation: Bidrag til tidsskrift/Konferencebidrag i tidsskrift /Bidrag til avisTidsskriftartikelForskningpeer review

While drug dealing organised as drop-off delivery services is not a new phenomenon, research indicates that it is on the rise. The European Monitoring Centre for Drugs and Drug Addiction recently described how the European cocaine market is undergoing a process of “[u]bernisation”, where sellers promote additional services beyond the productf, such as “fast delivery anywhere at any time” (2018, p. 18). Based on the assumption that developments in retail-level drug distribution are fuelled by supply-side as well as demand-side processes, this paper reports findings from a qualitative study in Denmark exploring user motivations for purchasing drugs from delivery dealers.
