Oh cocaine has been around for a long time (quite popular in the 20's - 50's) and amphetamines but in the 80's crack cocaine became cheap and accessible.

More history regarding drugs and Hollywood.

Cocaine, morphine, and even heroin were legal and even common in the US until 1914.

Amphetamines were widely used during WW2 and regularly given to soldiers and pilots.
It was also favored by Hitler and probably contributed greatly to his mental decline towards the end.
The difference in characterization of crime and who commits it skews what criminality looks like demographically. "What we're seeing so far is very similar to the process that we see with Islamic violent Jihad radicalization," said former FBI Assistant Director Frank Figliuzzi, "This wanting to belong to a cause greater than yourself, wanting to get affirmation from a group who may not even know who you are or ever met you. And then feeling like you're part of this deployment, this cause. You heard him say on the clip 'It's my job to protect this.'
No, it's not your job. But you think it is. And video last night shows him walking around roaming around with the assault rifle not really doing much of protecting anything." Figliuzzi made it clear that calling these characters "troubled" is a misnomer. "I would assert," Figliuzzi continued. "that it's time we stopped using the word ‘troubled’ with regard to white young people who act out like this and start thinking about the radicalized term that we used when people of color or people of Islamic faith act out like this. This is a radicalization process that's happening. It happened with the El Paso shooter in Texas. We kept hearing he was troubled. No, he was radicalized. And it's happening online."

Thanks for reminding me about that!
