Well, yeah but that's kind of a given for any city. I think this article is probably excluding marijuana.

It's sad that Espanola has such a serious drug problem. The location is beautiful, between Santa Fe and Taos, and I've met some wonderful people from that town.

I was reading in the paper last week, it did a story on this guy from Mexico who was selling drugs in the Santa Fe area, he was selling some potent heroin, it resulted in over 85 overdoses in just 3 years in the small town of Chimayo and the rural villages, that is not including all of the other overdoeses over the years, the area has been bad for a long time.

Ah, come on DC and Baltimore can't be that bad. There was a huge drug problem in DC in the '80s, making the city the most violent in the country, but these days drug-violence is relatively rare. I guess all the other cities must have really, really low incidences of drug violence.

As for SF, they must mean the entire BA, including Oakland.

Still. Forbes is a pretty relaible source for these things...

No, when it comes to SF in the article, they are only referring to SF city proper. Rightfully so, SF is a drug mecca of America.

Cocaine is of high recreactional use in all aspects of society. Rich, poor, black, white, it doesn't matter.
