Bronx, NY has the most drugs out of anywhere. First off, it has higher population than most cities in the US. Secondly, a large portion of the borough is the hood. Drugs is the name of the game here. I seriously don't know one young male (or older) whose not in the game.

Doesn't make it the most dangerous place, because most people are chilling right now, but in terms of hustlers, I'd put the Bronx up there with ANYPLACE.

That's my word.

The hustle is deep in many places, bronx included but no more per capita than lets say oakland where a lot of the game got its start.

if yall got out of the Bronx you would be surprised at how many small towns are swallowed up by drugs, and if you do drugs you meet more people that do,people that you wouldnt even think.

LSD became very popular in the late 60s with the flower children and Haight Ashbury was the mecca for the hippies Tune in . Turn on . Drop out. Also Hash and pot were widely used.

Wilkes County, NC is a bad place to so many people have died due to drug overdose and it is getting outrageous. More and More people here are doing drugs its taking over the small town i grew up in and loved its making me not feel safe anymore. And when you look most people in the eye you know that they are one of the druggies, it is so scary
