Rock did influence people to use drugs in the 60 and 70 and in Woodstock?

It was WAY more complicated than that. One major factor was the introduction of LSD to the street.

Not much different than Rap/HipHop's influence on murders and drive-bys.

People used drugs in the '60s and the '70s. And they listened to (and played) rock music. And some rock music was about drugs.
And that all happened together. It wasn't that rock caused or increased drug use. (Country fans were sparking up in the same time period.)
I note that the longer that J. Edgar Hoover was head of the FBI, the more young people used drugs. Coincidence? I think not.
The youth culture of the '60s and the '70s included drugs, rock music and blue jeans. None of those three was a cause of the other two.

Rock music? Yes. Still does.
