To start making sense of the ‘drugs-crime connection’ concept, we must first recognise that both drug use and crime are labels for whole areas of deviant behaviour. For instance, there are many distinguishable sub-groups of drug taking and criminal activity. More importantly, drug use and crime are episodes of social behaviour, each having a standard internal structure.
