As long as drugs are illegal, whichever drugs are easiest to make with legally-available materials will become popular, no matter how bad they are or what they're usually cut with.
Make drugs legal, and drug users will return to the classic drugs (pot/coke/opiates/hallucinogens). They'll only use other drugs if they provide a better high or less risk, which to my understanding meth does not.

“Who are you?” “A friend. I'm here to prevent you from making a mistake.” “You have no idea what I'm doing here, friend.” “In specific terms, no, but I swore an oath to protect the world...” (continuum)
