    The master’s thesis focuses on the open drug scene in Ljubljana and how the society known as Kralji ulice (in English: Kings of the Street Society) deals with this problem. The first part of the thesis presents some basic concepts and includes an overview of existing research regarding this topic. Furthermore, we describe how the Kings of the Street Society operates in more detail. In the empirical part, we use a qualitative research method to study how the association dealt with the open drug scene that developed in Ljubljana. We conducted interviews and analysed the answers of those employed in the association. Since 2018 the term open drug scene started to appear in the media; therefore, in our research, we focused on articles published between the years 2008 and 2018. By outlining the problem, we presented the operation of associations such as the Kings of the Street Society and other similar associations dealing with homelessness and substance abuse as well as other important actors tackling this issue in Ljubljana. In our conclusion, we present the points of view of those involved in our research and provide some suggestions on how to deal with the open drug scene in the future.
