This article examines the distribution of drug problems across neighborhoods and the nature and extent of organized community responses to them. It tests contradictory hypotheses about the effect that neighborhood drug problems should have on communities, and it reexamines past research on the social and economic correlates of community activism. The results challenge the conventional wisdom, and suggest that in the 1990s, antidrug activism has taken new forms.
