Some of these were really surprising - some not so much.

I was surprised by SF, I'd though maybe Oakland but not SF.

Yeah, Oakland is huge with drugs, but so is SF (which might surprise some since Oakland is widely known as the bay's "ghetto" city). That article claims that heroin is the biggest drug in SF, and heroin and crack are the biggest in Oakland...but honestly, crack is probably just as big in SF as it is in Oakland.

Right again rah! If you have ever been to the tenderloin and walked the streets people offer more prescription pills than H. It seems like the majority of dealers out the are selling oxy, methadone, and morphine. I hear people offering those 10 times as much as "chiva" which is slang for straight heroin. The crack epidemic in SF is as huge as any city in the country. People smoke meth so casually in SF it is crazy. Like dave chapelle said, "I went to the tendorloin, and it ain't that tender!" "never in my life have I seen people smoke crack so casually." "They sit there and drink their starbucks and smoke crack." Then he goes on to say something about someone asking him to watch out while he breaks into a car or something and says something like "yo ***** that's my car!" Point is I think opiates and crack are both on the same level in SF not one or the other.

I totally agree. That town supposedly only has 10,000 people. I don't think anyone has ever heard of, or would've guessed, that town.
