    En este trabajo se usa el concepto de Capital social perverso para explicar cómo el narcotráfico en Colombia ha aprendido a gestionar su relación con el Estado, específicamente, cómo han aprendido a gestionar los huecos estructurales propios de su relación con el Estado. Se muestran los sucesivos intentos de los narcotraficantes por cambiar la severidad de las normas. Este proceso de aprendizaje es costoso para varias generaciones de criminales. La última fase de aprendizaje consiste en formular una Ley que es ampliamente favorable para los narcotraficantes. Esto se logró por medio del control de algunos miembros del Congreso de la República. La explicación se construye a partir de la unión de la teoría económica del crimen, el concepto de «capital social» y el concepto de «hueco estructural».
