For the US, you tend to see Milwaukee listed, and I would guess that they're up there on a per-capita basis. I do my part to increase Buffalo's standing

I realize his question was meant to apply only to American cities, but I couldn't help myself with the "Moscow, not Idaho" response. Stolichnaya + long winters + plutocracy = ?

The OP may be confused with alcoholics vs social culture of drinking .Well overall American drinking is a joke when you look at those other countries that drink way more.But if the OP is looking for correlation of US vs those countries of alcoholics or social culture of drinking , naming community district may be better to compare the stats here. That say south west Tampa or Beach Park Isles in Tampa may have more alcoholics or social culture of drinking .

On flip side Americans have higher drug use than those countries.

Yeah, I tend to think you're right. I mean, while I'm guessing that Las Vegas' alcohol-related arrest total is about as high as any city's in the country, I'm not so sure that their rate of alcoholism is the highest, or so obviously the highest that it must be excluded from comparison. In reality the answer to his question is probably some small Alaskan city, some place where alcoholism is legitimately rampant, albeit amongst a small population. Trying to recall the name of the documentary I watched on a few of these cities...forget if it was Current TV or NatGeo Drugs Inc...probably the latter

Yeah, confirmed re: Drugs Inc...despite the title of "Alaska Heroin Rush", alcohol is given just as much treatment here. "But one of the biggest killers in Alaska is illicit alcohol"...repeal Alaskan prohibition, heh. If the mod(s) will allow this link to stand, here is the full episode:


National Geographic Drugs Inc Alaska Heroin Rush - YouTube

Why Providence? I remember when I visited Brown, the environs seemed pretty interesting...I have never been there before or after
