Drugs market are basically animated and governed by the behavior of the actors prevailing in the market. Exchange of the drugs and heroine in the marketplace builds the social connection and changes the behavior of the general public who are involved in the exchange system. Dwyer, R clearly pointed out that the behavior of the actor in the marketplace is constituted through the social relations and power differentials. Which helps in building the cultural understandings in the society.

Over the period near about 123 dealers are from the Vietnamese out of the 300 dealers of the cigarette exchange. Most of the dealers use to consume heroin daily. Dealers use to divide the heroin into a smaller portion for resale and take a small portion for their personal use and consumption. Dealers are involved in the business of drug exchange since near about five to ten years.

In the end, it can be concluded that exchange plays an important role in the society. As it builds the social hierarchy system in the society. Social behavior and connection shape the market conditions. In the same manner exchange of the cigarette also shapes the social behavior of the individual in the market. Exchange of cigarette in the marketplace will enable the researcher to find the deep insight of the marketplace.
