Abstract

[Autom. eng. transl.] The aim of the paper is to investigate the attributions of meaning subjectively associated with personal and individual cannabis consumption. The first experiences of use acquire a meaning not extrinsectable from the context as they are profoundly linked to the conduct of the peer group. However, for some subjects, consumption tends over time to break away from the collective dynamics in order to take on a meaning and function that is extraneous to principles of sharing, reciprocity and exchange. With what motivations does a subject who initially experienced cannabinoid consumption in a group switch to individual consumption? Is it possible to identify a consumer journey? The contribution probes these dimensions through semi-structured interviews with regular cannabinoid consumers.
