Before meth it was heroin and before that they huffed paint. And all sorts of other drugs and ways to get high too. Drug use has always been apart of that lifestyle. Is it worse now? It’s possible. Hard to say.

A lot of homies were smoking Crystal in the 2000s. And early 2010s. It was just the thing to do.
California is the #1 import of crystal meth from Mexico so it's everywhere and cheap. You can get a 8 ball for like $60.
That's how alot of gangmembers make money by selling tweak.
Some people start tweaking it in their teens and move on from it when they get older.

I have a lot of homies that started tweaking it around 13, 14, and 15 and don't fuck with it anymore in their 20s. Then I have homies who just stay stuck on it.

I think young people nowadays are into pill popping and drinking lean cus that's what all the mainstream rappers be promoting in their music. There's still a lot of tweakers out here.

I think it will always be something. Maybe the kind of person that says yes to joining a gang might be the same kind of person that says yes to drugs. Supposedly overall drug use is down among teens across the board. Hard to know if that crosses over into gang member populations though.

back like in the late 1970s and early to mid 80s, i was going back and forth up to to Fresno, on account of i had a lady up there, and back then, Fresno was the capital of crank, all those nice pink or beige colors and shit :) up there in the outskirts of town there wasn't much nothing to do up there but party and get high and get laid., hell, in those same days down here in the harbor area in los, we had the usual lokera mota y coca plus sherms kools lovelies primos piedra acido purples white stars blue or red dragon acido y la chiva, tu sabes, the regular, but kriko, nah, that wasn't in the barrios, blancas pildoras that was only among the bikers y rockers klikas, but not the average loco on the streets., that all changed in the nineties, and in my opinion, besides all the other so termed and deemed criminal aspects as to the answers to the question, i'd say "price" was the main reason for it to have taken off like it did in the southland., this after the crack the era of the 1980s
