Was awesome but....when at the casinos and walking down the strip I had at least six different people ask me if I wanted to buy cocaine.

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.

Only cocaine? What a disappointment.

Was told during my Nellis orientation that cocaine is at a 30 year low in cost.

I was approached a few months ago to buy meth.

What does a cocaine user look like?

You're on the strip, people come here to have fun. If you have money, you might buy cocaine. Nothing shocking about that, brazen they offer it in broad daylight, yes.

Same thing happened to me, a few years ago. Before that, they were asking if I wanted to buy pot. Since pot is legal now, the (illegal-drug) marketing teams have come up with product differentiation strategies.

Yeah, I've been to the Strip at least 20 times and by that I mean each 2-7 day trips and I've never once been asked about drugs. I've been asked about strip clubs and handed flyers of course haha but I've never even been propositioned actually.

My best coke story was when I sneezed in the pile at the top Of Caesars Palace before we went to the big round thing they had in 1984. I can’t recall what exactly it was called, but it was a huge, dome shaped auditorium and all the flicks were essentially 3D.

I’ve never, ever been solicited to buy drugs in this town. Those guys part like the Red Sea when I walk through.

Neither have I. Vacationed here every couple of years from the early '80's until we moved here in 2014. It kinda pisses me off, actually. No hard stuff, but at least offer me me some decent weed.
