Defying the widespread perception that young people today subscribe to healthier lifestyles than previous generations, people between the ages of 18 and 25 are the biggest cocaine-consuming demographic in both markets. One reason could be that the cocaine market has become technology-driven rather than thug-dominated and monopolized; it’s a modern, entrepreneurial and competitive marketplace.

A reorganization of the cocaine supply chain and the players involved is visible at the middle and retail level, with the emergence of fragmented, looser and more horizontal organizational structures. Smaller groups have been able to enter the market by using a range of information technology like encryption, darknet marketplaces, social media for dealing and cryptocurrencies. Entrepreneurship in the competitive cocaine market is evident from innovative distribution strategies, such as cocaine-exclusive call-centres. These new methods appear to reflect to some extent the type of disruption seen in other areas facilitated by the common use of smartphones — a potential ‘Uberization’ of the cocaine trade — a competitive market in which sellers compete by offering additional services such as fast and flexible delivery options.
