Getting Involved in the Supply of Drugs

  • Angie Heal


This chapter details how each respondent initially became involved in the supply of drug and suggests an emerging typology in relation to reasons for involvement for these Jamaican respondents in the UK drugs market. It also discusses how they learned the trade and the different roles they played. The development and global position of the Jamaican and UK drugs markets and the size, structure, modus operandi and key roles in UK markets were detailed in Chapter 2. It also outlined May et al.’s (2005) different categories of drug sellers and Matrix’s (2007) definition of roles within the drugs trade. Both are utilised here to examine respondents’ roles.
