Cannot drop database because it is currently in use.

This is a very common error when DROP Database is command is executed and the database is not dropped.

The following commands will raise above error:
USE AdventureWorks;
DROP DATABASE AdventureWorks;

The following commands will not raise an error and successfully drop the database:

USE Master;
DROP DATABASE AdventureWorks;

If you are still getting the error after you try using
use master
drop database (databaseName)

Close SQL Server Management Studio completely. Open it again and connect as normal. Now you will be able to drop the database with
use master
drop database (databaseName)

Hope it helps!
