I find it highly amusing that in my town no one has but the rise in coffee shops and expensive bars and the rise of cocaine and drug-fueled behaviour, in my area into the same argument. Clearly, the Cocaine dealers are looking for the middle class and the most obvious signs of a middles class population are the rise in expensive bars and Coffee shops. Certainly, this will Cocaine will be sold in these bars how far it leeches into the coffee shops is uncertain as no one ever looks into it.
The Cocaine epidemic od London stretches out to these areas strewn with coffee shops and yet the blame is all ways pushed onto the working class, avoiding clearly the areas where this new drug epidemic is coming from. This makes it handy for the drug addict giving the plausible deniability, especially when their little angels are the ones trashing the town as they have copied Mummys and Daddys addiction. This leads to a situation of the problem not being addressed as certain people in charge are the drug addicts.
It is a shame to see small towns thrown into the grips of a hidden epidemic, especially when the guilty parties are sat in offices running the place.
