  • Drug sellers' neutralizations of guiltless drug sales and avoidance of "drug dealer" identities. [Journal Article]
  • IJInt J Drug Policy 2019 Jul 19; 73:16-23
  • Dickinson T, Jacques S
  • CONCLUSIONS: We conclude by suggesting that neutralizations vary by offender characteristics due to the differing background expectancies of offenders' social groups. We also suggest that neutralizing the repercussions of immoral actions is not always a static, monothematic technique. It is instead an active, complex, and interactional process that occurs as persons make sense of who they are and what they are doing. Finally, we argue that studies of neutralization theory relying on direct, standardized questions or the presentation of abstract vignettes may fail to capture a sizable part of the neutralization process among offenders.
