For those of you who've lived in Portland long enough to bitch as you do about how ruined it is now, I solicit your anonymous local expertise on a question of drug epidemiology: in your opinion, approximately what fraction of meth abusers in Portland fall into the respective categories American Indian, Asian, Hawaiian/Pacific Islander, Black/African American, White, or multiracial? Not necessarily addressing every last one exactly but just what you know based on your own experience over the years, that may or may not be reflected in annual arrest or substance abuse center reports. And has it changed over the years?
