Visualizing methamphetamine use in San Francisco Bay Area

I wrote some tools in Javascript and Python to track and visualize a few aspects of close-to-real-time methamphetamine use in the San Francisco Bay Area. You can see all the tools here.

Disclaimer: the intent here is just to demonstrate the technology and showcase some of the data available. It isn’t a commentary on any perceived “methamphetamine problem” in SF. Alcohol and cigarettes, for example, cause much more damage (and represent more costs to municipalities) than meth or the other currently illegal drugs.
