OSPINA ESCOBAR, Angélica María. Changes in the Dynamics of Drug Dealing and Use. A Generational Analysis for Hermosillo, Sonora. Frontera norte [online]. 2019, vol.31, e2035.  Epub Feb 05, 2020. ISSN 2594-0260.

The article examines generational changes in the links between organized crime and male problem drug users in Hermosillo, Sonora. To this end, biographical narratives are reconstructed that establish links between participating males’ individual life stories, the timeline of illegal drug production and trafficking in Mexico, and the social timeline of the socioeconomic changes experienced in Hermosillo between 1970 and 2016.

Keywords : Organized crime; youth; drugs; northern Mexico; Hermosillo.
