Drug Careers and Other Crimes

  • Angie Heal


To date this book has depicted the family lives of respondents in Jamaica, their education and employment experiences, their motivations for leaving their homeland and coming to the UK, and their experiences of migration, including fatherhood and social networks. It has outlined the individual trajectories of each of the respondents, from leaving Jamaica to being initiated into drugs markets in the UK. This chapter further examines their ‘careers’ in drug sales — if indeed that was the case. It discusses the level of each individual’s involvement in the trade, the financial rewards attached to such illicit activity and any involvement in other crimes. It adds further detail to the narrative accounts of their early drug supplying experiences, and provides more rich data to help understand their life experiences.
