ROSO, Adriane et al. Discourses about crack in the printed mass media. Estud. psicol. (Campinas) [online]. 2013, vol.30, n.3, pp.455-466. ISSN 0103-166X.

This work aims to present the results of the quantitative part of the research project entitled "Ideology, production of subjectivities and drugs: media discourse on crack in the (post)modern culture". The methodology consisted of an analysis of the symbolic forms that refer to the crack published in two newspapers of general circulation within the central region of the state of Rio Grande do Sul, Brazil. The descriptive statistical analysis of data was performed using the SPSS v.17 software. The results suggest that these newspapers treated the use of crack as a "police matter", linking it directly to violence. However, there was a lack of in-depth discussions regarding the causes and consequences of this phenomenon.

Palavras-chave : Crack (drugs); Newspaper; Social psychology.
