Well this is probably true since drugs make most people unfit to work and hold a job. Thus these desperate drug addicts will turn to violence to get the money they need to purchase their daily dose. That's why crime and drugs go together. It actually really depends on which drug you are using. Marijuana is known to chill people down and make them rather peaceful or unmotivated. Drugs with a higher addiction potential can easily be associated with violence though.

Who is affected by gang violence and drugs?

Drugs and violence are very serious matters. I am not trying to be a do gooder and say neither should happen, but when drugs and violence happen on a large scale, for example throughout a city this can lead to many problems. Firstly, for children on drugs or that suffer from violence their education may be affected and thus lives be worse up later on and may continue to use drugs and even become violent. A larger strain on public services such as the police as they have to fight the crime and lock away the drug dealers. However, if drugs didn't happen all economies around the world may be affected. One person's wages are another, and so if you take away the drug dealer you are limiting hundreds of other people that relied on his wage for theirs. As you can see many people are affected by drugs and violence and this is just a taster as to who is and why/how. Hope it helped :)
