ROMANI, Oriol. Adicciones, drogodependencias y "problema de la droga" en España: la construcción de un problema social. Cuicuilco [online]. 2010, vol.17, n.49, pp. 83-101. ISSN 0185-1659.
This paper analyzes the construction of a social problem as part of an attempt to consolidate hegemonic discourses in a time of political change. The "drug problem" in Spain is analyzed, taking as the time frame the transition from Franco regime to democracy and focusing on its constitutive paradigm: heroin use. Three basic parameters are examined: the political and sociocultural context; drug consumption in general; and efforts at social intervention.
