I think crack cocaine is a problem in all large cities and smaller ones to an extent.

I know in the 1980s crack was a major problem in South Florida.

Actually my guess is that there's a lower rate of crack consumption than in many other states. Methamphetamine seems to be the drug of choice lately, but again no more than anywhere else.

I've lived here for four years full time and never had anyone offer to sell me drugs. Of course I wasn't out looking for them.

Then why are you asking?

Different parts of the state have different drugs of choice. Check out "Behindtheaddiction.com" on utube. I was involved with the documentary; this is but a clip of the whole picture. Pills are very big in the Sarasota area. Herion, crack & meth plus pills abound in Bradenton.

Nine years later, the people my xboyfriend was involved with are still doing the drugs and still being arrested for the same reason, or they're locked up in federal prison or dead.

^^^I agree, and would add prescription drugs too.
