Druglink article 2014 – Higher education by Max Daly

The public perception of the drug dealer is either a seedy street corner ne’er do well or a bling-laden ‘kingpin’. But Max Daly sheds light on a different world of dealing.

A university campus is a drug dealer’s dream. Thousands of young people living together like sardines in a tin, eager for new experiences, in an environment largely cocooned from the attentions of police and hardened criminals. It is no wonder then, that drug markets in universities are lively, lucrative and attract young dealers who would not normally get involved in a crime that could end with them spending the rest of their degree behind bars.
