If you're trying to keep your kids away from modern trappings, turn off the TV, internet, and cell phones. Good luck!
BUT, you go too far south in SW Mississippi, you get fairly close to Baton Rouge - with a college that, while politically conservative, is not exactly know for adhering to the "finest family values". LSU is if anything even wilder than Ole Miss. But not, so far as I know a "liberal" school, just a drunken "bro"-type's paradise. And at any rate, drug use is just as prevalent in small towns as in the cities. In fact, I'd argue there'd be MORE pressure to do drugs in small towns than in metropolitan areas. At least in the metro areas, if your kid doesn't like one type of crowd, no big deal. He or she can always find somebody else. Whereas in small towns, by the very nature of their smallness, your kid's selection of potential friends is extremely limited. I say this as someone who grew up in small town north Louisiana (precisely the same kind of culture as Mississippi).

I am not understanding the point of this thread. As a former Mississippian, this applies to most of Mississippi. The state is slow to change. Just avoid Jackson Metro, college towns, and touristy areas then it is the social conservative/traditional Deep South as you could get.

Not from here, but have lived in south Louisiana for over 30 years. It always amazes me how different (culturally, politically, food, speech, etc..) south LA is from other parts of the south.
