What about other drugs? The small Midwestern town where I attended college had a growing methamphetamine problem. At least, it appeared to be growing (maybe it was just becoming more obvious?). Most of the kids, though, were still clean (at least, as clean as people that age have ever been). I guess there's a new set of problems each time around that the previous generation didn't/couldn't forsee. I'm only 26 and, while I know there was a lot of drinking and drug use going on when I was in high school, it seems as though it's a lot worse now. I can't tell if it really is or if it's just that everyone is talking about it more.
