Heroin, it seems to be a problem among HS students here.

Yeah. Weed is HUGE here. Though I tend to think it's big everywhere.

Depends on your socioeconomic status. Meth has been a big problem for 10 years in Atlanta's gay and poor white communities (although it has about burned itself out), but it never caught on in the black community. Crack cocaine seems to be the drug of choice there.

That is a problem down here in Charlotte. I hear heroin is growning among younger users. Strange statistic indeed.

Weed probably isn't bigger anywhere else in the country besides LA,which most don't consider a 'hard drug' and we don't really consider it a "problem" here either. Ecstasy which was like crack here the last couple years how big it got,and of course the other psychedelics and crack and heroin which more or less has always had a presence.

the "hard drug" marijuana is pretty much popular everywhere.

For Boston I said Shrooms and PCP..... (this thread is silly)

But for real, coke, meth and heroin should be the only options as "hard drugs" that actually have notable abuse (i mean people smoke opium but really how many?). the notable other drug thats big around here is OxyContin
