But new research from The Journal of Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndromes or JAIDS, shows meth use by San Francisco gay men has declined considerably. &nbsp;Why? &nbsp;Was it the public service campaign? Or a generational shift? &nbsp;And is it really declining or are people reluctant to tell the truth due to a stigma now?
