This article will bring you to the list of the most addicted, drug infested cities in America in 2017. Insider Monkey has recently published an interesting article about it giving you some advice. There aren’t significant studies on this topic which would create a clear and complete picture regarding the places with the most drugs. After all, it is quite hard to determine the presence of something which is illegal, and hence, its owners will go to any lengths to hide their complicity in this regard. What is surprising though, is that when I was conducting my research, the name of New York popped up much less than I thought it would. New York has a long history of being associated with drugs and partying, but apparently, that’s simply because the population is so large, it skews our perceptions. If you want to learn about the most drug addicted cities in NY, you should head on over to this article, which shows New York counties with the highest and lowest rate of drug-related diagnosis in newborns.
Now without a further ado let’s see what Insider Monkey has investigated for us. We have picked three of the most addicted, drug infested cities in America in 2017 from their list.
The first one is Toledo that has seen more than a hundred die of overdoses recently. However, realizing that it has a problem, the city has started to go after the criminals, resulting in over a dozen men being arrested and a major drug pipeline being shut down, which was responsible for the distribution of cocaine. Salt Lake City is the second one our list. Utah is a very conservative state. Drugs, alcohol and underage sex are greatly discouraged and frowned upon, especially when compared with the rest of the city. Despite this stance, and recently a ‘heroin tsunami’ has swept the state, which has dramatically affected Salt Lake City, which in turn has led to a high rate of deaths from overdosing. Here’s an attempt to try and understand the drug problem currently present in Milwaukee that ranks third on our list of top 20 most addicted, drug infested cities in America in 2017. In a nationwide operation conducted last month, 19 people were arrested in Milwaukee, and more than a million bucks in cash were seized as well.
