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.
What the researchers found is that after controlling for gender, age, education level, and ideology, NFC [Need for Chaos] was strongly correlated with a willingness to spread hostile rumors online. Younger, less educated men were more likely to have a strong NFC, as were people who were lonely and perceived themselves as lacking social status. NFC is associated with support for Donald Trump, which makes sense. Both Trump and to a lesser, and in a qualitatively different way, Sanders offered the 2016 electorate — including all the susceptible, alienated and disenchanted folks who comprise it — a radical departure from the norm, giving voice to sentiments that had probably been bubbling in their followers’ heads for quite a long time.

The responses to three of the statements in particular were “staggering,” the paper says: 24 percent agreed that society should be burned to the ground; 40 percent concurred with the thought that “When it comes to our political and social institutions, I cannot help thinking ‘just let them all burn’ ”; and 40 percent also agreed that “we cannot fix the problems in our social institutions, we need to tear them down and start over.”
