Boston must win because of all the college kids. It's not as big of a party town as say Miami, or Las Vegas. Surprised either of those 2 did not take the top spot.

Yeah, but those kids are going to Harvard, MIT, and other highfalutin institutions, so they're bound to be pretty mellow compared to the likes of Cal State San Diego (number one party school). Maybe they bottle it up until they get to New York after graduation, or maybe they party more than I realize, I wouldn't know.

As for Vegas, UNLV is fairly high on the party factor (not so much on all the other factors if you know what I mean, aside from basketball and hotel management) but not as high as people would think. UNLV is a commuter school: you could live one block away and scarcely know it was there, and most the students are Vegas natives and are relatively blase about the whole 'Vegas' thing. As a result, they probably don't do much more drinking and drugging than they did while still in high school. They also have to get around the 'under 21' thing just like all other college kids do, and Vegas enforces that more than you'd think, though the kids that are actually from there develop pretty slick ways to get around it (largely a matter of knowing the right people).

Other than the strip and some areas in North West part of Vegas it probably not that high.

The south other than New Orleans and Atlanta don't drink much or do drugs .It more north east part of US thing.

Hahahahahahahaha this is a joke right? Moonshiners, marijuana farms, meth labs? The south has by far the overwhelming majority of these "establishments" in the US.

It was explain and discussed that UK drinks the most than Canada second than the blue states in US third than the red states.

The US most drugs by border and coast.

Is it true the US has higher alcohol and drug use than Canada and the UK ?

It's almost 2PM, the high is -2 (windchill included), and there are a dozen bars within short walking/biking distance. Guess what me and everyone else here is doing tonight?
