Abstract

Who is a narco? The details may vary, but our mental image is usually very similar. We picture a young man, working class, non-white, poorly educated, festooned in a cowboy hat or other flamboyant outfit. In this, the entertainment industry has done a brilliant job in (re)producing a stereotype. But it’s also a myth, and this myth has led to ineffective policies that allow the real narcos to remain the shadows.
