Because someone over at DrugAbuse.com either has way too much time on their hands or has a mad drug problem and is trying to figure out where they want to live next, they made this map of the top U.S. cities that partake in certain vices…aka drugs, booze, sex and gambling. You know, an average Saturday night.
Using social media, ” We looked at tweets relating to 9 different vices, in cities with populations of 200,000 or more and that had over 200 tweets. Of the 451,484 tweets that came in, 107,835 met the geographic criteria we were looking for.” Then they did some other statistical bullshit that used fancy words like “geotagging” that I’m pretty sure no one reading this actually cares about.
As you can see, people in New Orleans like to get wrecked on prescriptions and then bone each other, Albuquerque-ites have clearly never seen a single episode of Breaking Bad presumably because they’re too busy doing meth, and as for Columbus, Ohio? There’s nothing better to do there except heroin. Have you ever been to Ohio? I’d rather spend a day at a landfill.
If you’re bummed that your city isn’t included, don’t worry, there’s still hope! The survey also included the top 5 capitals for each vice, and from looking at the data it appears that Las Vegas is running the game (obviously), while we randomly have Richmond, Virginia popping up in the sex and heroin categories. Virginia is even worse than Ohio though, so I guess that’s understandable.
