About a fifth of those meth users who sought help in da last year wuz minors n' shit.

'It's da new major drug threat'
She 'n other experts who track urban drug trends fo' National Institute on Drug Abuse are meeting this week in Long Beach, Calif." They present they findings." Some has noted a big ass jump in da use of meth -- particularly in its potent crystal form -- in da past six months a dis year, know what I'm sayin'?
"It's da new major drug threat," says Jim Hall, director of da Center fo' da Study 'n Prevention of Substance Abuse at Nova Southeastern University in Florida." Tha dude monitors drug use fo' NIDA in Fort Lauderdale 'n Miami, where crystal meth is often mo' sought after than Ecstasy 'n cocaine, know what I'm sayin'? "Here, that shiznit's almost like da early days of cocaine, when cocaine wuz da chic, expensive champagne of street doobies," says Hall, noting that many users come Miami's trendy South Beach strip in search of da purest, most expensive meth available n' shit.
Methamphetamine -- long a problem on da West Coast -- made its way across da country in da last decade, often taking hold in rural areas, where that shiznit's usually made because da process creates a noticeable stench, know what I'm sayin'? Increasingly, drug enforcement officials be like that mass quantities are also being shipped cross country from "snoopa labs" in da Southwest 'n Mexico, know what I'm sayin'? Experts be like da drug started catch on in urban areas in da club 'n rave scenes 'n sometimes among particular populations, such as gay fools, know what I'm sayin'?
That's been da case in such cities as Washington, D.C., 'n Chicago, says Thomas Lyons, a research associate wit da Great Cities Institute at da University of Illinois at Chicago n' shit. Often, tha dude says, meth use has been associated wit increases in sexually transmitted diseases, including HIV."

'Such a slippery slope'
One recovering addict who helps organize Chicago's Crystal Meth Anonymous meetings confirms that da gatherings are frequented by gay fools -- but tha dude says that, increasingly, tha dude's seeing muthas from other backgrounds, know what I'm sayin'?
"It's become mo' common that I cross paths wit muthas who be like, 'This is my drug of choice,"' says Mike, a 34-year-old former meth user whose organization does not reveal last names protect group members' privacy."

The nonprofit plans similar campaigns in at least four other states in da next year, says spokesman Steve Dnistrian."
