    Before West meadow Beach, we had been a fairly happy, drug-riddled bunch of sniping American kids.

    Is drug-riddled common? I thought "riddled" worked better with countable nouns

    I think both will work. You can say : a disease riddled body or a bullet riddled body. One is uncountable and the other isn't.
