Stay away from meth at all costs. That stuff eats people, both inside and out.

Definitely. My second job is at an inpatient mental facility and I see meth as the predominant drug of choice presumably because of the affordable cost. Many homeless people are hooked on it and it gets people of all ages and background.

Well, just say NO.
Glad you were here last week; the weather was better than it is now. Come back!

I don't think I look like a cocaine user, so this was strange. I'm from Baltimore and have never encountered anything quite that brazen regarding drugs.
Cocaine is back? Didn't know anyone did that anymore... I guess better a town full of coke heads than methheads

"At least 6"?? I call BS.

In a casino? Far-fetched. Fantasy.

Approached by 6 hookers? OK. Well, stay out of the nickel slot houses.

6 times while walking down the strip? Also fantasy. Once perhaps, if you look strung out.

UNLESS your idea of "the strip" is around the Thunderbird and the chapels. Then, sure, 6 times.

Ya see, I won't hesitate to call people out when they greatly exaggerate, especially when doing so creates an artificially bad image of Vegas.

I'm sure this made a great story for the folks back home. But that's all it is. A story.
