Based on extensive participant observation research, a life-history model is presented to explain why very few of those who come into contact with narcotics become problematic consumers; that is make drugs one of the most central elements in their lives. The model covers four stages in the deviant career; two preceding and two subsequent to the individual's narcotics debut. Prohibition and harm reduction as models for intervention are presented, and the implications for drug policy of the life-history model are discussed.

He is currently Associate Professor there. Combining anthropological methodology with sociological theory Ted Goldberg has done extensive participant observation research on the narcotics scene in Stockholm.
