The Evolution of the Political and Media Framing of Drugs (2003–2022)

Abstract

The way of framing drugs has clearly evolved in the last twenty years. The concept of addiction has become generalized and no longer concerns only substances, but also behaviors. We are also witnessing a form of generalized decriminalization of drug use and even drug trafficking in artistic representations, with sometimes sympathetic heroes of films or series who use or deal drugs. The tendency to emphasize the public health approach of harm reduction has also increased. In the United States, where the legalization of cannabis is progressing, the major phenomenon that has struck a chord is the use of opioids, whereas in France, the political framework of the subject seems likely to remain confused, as no major change has occurred.
