A friend of mine (I know him online from another community) said that drugs are becoming more and more of an issue for Vegas but I don't ever hear about it or see it in the news. Does anyone else live in Vegas or close by? I am curious to know if this is true.

There was some news on it last year, maybe you missed it? Something about an influx of younger visitors increasing drug issues in Vegas. I think this was due to other places being closed so the party-goers were going to Vegas.

It is a major issue that I wish more people were talking about. It is a shame that only locals show concern. We should all be aware it is an issue.

Yikes! I heard about this but had no idea they were having issues with fentanyl. I bet this is why a lot of younger people across the US are having heart-related issues and dying. Someone told me that a lot of this is coming up through Mexico and some speculations have been made that China might be selling it to them. Scary stuff!

I did not make that connection Shelly! Wow, you have to be right. I did hear about fake pills being found all over the US but the worst of it is down south.

I heard about this in 2019 but had no idea how bad it was until the George Floyd incident. His wrongful killing put fentanyl in the news and I think that is when more people started hearing about it.
