Espanola has always been known as a heroin-addict ridden hole.

But I guess that reputation doesn't extend much beyond New Mexico which most Americans consider to be mythical like Paul Bunyan and Atlantis.

Isn't that the case for pretty much any city in the US though? Weed is by far the most socially accepted, and thus prolific drug of them all.

Is there ANYTHING Forbes won't make a list about these days? What's next, a ranking of cities whose residents have the worst-smelling farts?

Surprises me that Miami, Chicago, or Detroit isn't on here but Atlanta, DC, and Baltimore is?? I know all the cities have problems with drugs but I thought it was more of a problem in Miami, Chicago, and Detroit rather than Atlanta, DC, and Baltimore.

Yeah, that was a little surprising. I was expecting to see a few more cities on the list, too.

Atlanta has been known for a few years now as a major drug distribution hub, but I was blown away by the fact that Los Angeles wasn't on there!! How on earth can any city have more drugs than L.A.???
