Based on a qualitative design, the specific aims is: (i) to study how new forms of computer-mediated communication affect drug trends, and how new and unknown drugs are interpreted within increasingly globalized social spaces, (ii) to explore how notions of trust is created in online drug communities, (iii) and to explore the social organisation of risk within such online formations. In sum, these insights provides insight in the sociocultural aspects involved in online drug related communities and how members use the online information that they gather and co-produce.
