Tweakers

Unfortunately, Davis has a fair number of methamphetamine addicts, commonly known as tweakers. They are one of the reasons it is always wise to lock up your bike.

One time they built an underground nest on the outskirts of town.

The term "tweaker" technically refers to a stage within the methamphetamine abuse cycle. From the State of California Resource Center, publication No. (ADP) 99-2455 ([WWW]link):


Do we have any stats on this? I didn't think that meth was a big problem in davis? -George Lewis

I spent some time sitting in my fair share of court rooms in Yolo County and lets just say that I heard the word methampetamine come up a lot. - RobRoy

Yes, it's hardly unheard of. - MichaelGiardina

Oh, what demons these tweakers are! In fact, sounds like an undercover cop - ChristopherMckenzie

Some statistics: the Davis Police logs [WWW]http://cityofdavis.org/police/log/press/ from 04/01-09/27/2005 list three meth incidents. However, all three were reported during the past few days (09/24-09/26), which seems unlikely. Maybe they drop reports from the online logs? RAND corporation seems to have *very* detailed stats about drug abuse [WWW]http://ca.rand.org/stats/health/drug.html — does anyone have access? JoFeuerstein

That log only has data for reports filed in the past week.RyanCastellucci
