second epidemic en Meth, AIDs, and The Gays <P>In the early part of the last decade, methamphetamine use in the Castro in San Francisco was called "the second epidemic" because gay men were having unprotected sex while high. 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?
