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.

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
