If you’ve been on the internet this year, you know that people love maps. Well, DrugAbuse.com (yes, it’s real) collected data based on people’s tweets with GPS enabled to find out what Twitter users’ favorite vices are and then mapped the hell out of it.
Some of the results are obvious. Colorado loves weed. Vegas loves gambling. New Mexico loves meth. Some, however, make you shake your head a bit, such as Des Moines’ love of Colombia’s finest, Columbus’s obsession with heroin, and Buffalo’s preference for molly. Weird, right? Well, you do have to question the legitimacy a bit.
I give DrugAbuse.com a lot of credit for thinking outside the box with their collection of slang words, but this list is hardly inclusive. No “joint” or “blunt” for Marijuana? No “Blow,” “Bolivian Marching Powder,” “White Girl,” or “Miley Cyrus” for Cocaine? No “gin” or “wasted” or “fucked up” for alcohol? Not even “fucking” for sex? Come on, now.
Further, it seems a bit odd to put sex, alcohol, and weed into the same category as oxycontin, heroin, and meth. One group will give you a good time. The other will flat out ruin your life and kill you. Hint: the good time group doesn’t include needle drugs.
Sex is a strange one anyhow. Who even considers it a vice? The South, perhaps, with their fervent Christianity? Nope. The South is the only place in America where sex is preferable to weed.
What in the world is wrong with people?
