SILVA, Nelson Pedro  y  GRANER-ARAUJO, Renata Cristina. The teen, drug trafficking and the function paterna. Rev. psicol. polít. [online]. 2011, vol.11, n.21, pp. 141-158. ISSN 2175-1390.

The involvement of adolescents as workers in the trafficking of illicit drugs has increased in recent decades in Brazil, and perhaps the world, making them also victims and perpetrators of violent acts related to this activity. Given the above, we conducted research - that now present some results in this article - on such subjects. Basically, we pretend to understand if they had, throughout its history, references to the authority that contributed to its entry in that class. The teens were chosen social stratum of low income and working on trafficking. We conducted interviews / conversations with these individuals and analyzed according to the perspective of psychoanalysis extramural. We conclude that, for them, such activity is a possible route in our society, to gain social recognition and feeling of belonging to the adult world and the society of consumers.
