This is a solid ethnography of cannabis dealers in Norway. I really like how Sandberg & Pedersen build up the case for understanding these young men's actions within the street culture as street capital.

Foucauldian discourse analysis and Bourdieu's theories seems to fit very well when trying to understand street culture dealings.
