Los Angeles Is One of the Best Cities In the World

For many people the desire to travel west and visit the great state of California is a dream come true. Every year thousands of people make the journey out west and many of them fall in love with the California atmosphere. Many of them plan on building new lives in the great cities of California. One such city just so happens to be Los Angeles.

With only 503 square miles of space with 34 of it occupying water, people are packed into this great city tighter than a can of sardines. With a population of almost 4 million people, Los Angeles is the second most populated city in the entire United States. It ranks 63rd in the entire world. You can bet there is a lot to see and do while you are in Los Angeles, but there is also a darker side to this brightly lit city.

Drugs of Choice
Alcohol is always on the top of the list for people struggling with addiction, but many people don’t consider it a drug because it can be bought in every corner store in the city. It is still just as dangerous if not more dangerous than the controlled substances that make their ways to the streets.

Methamphetamine usage is at an all time high in and around Los Angeles. It is cheap and easy to get a hold of. Heroin and prescription drugs are also starting to see more usage as well. Roughly just under 50,000 people were treated for drug and alcohol problems in 2014. Of all the treatments, marijuana, alcohol, heroin and methamphetamine were the top five being treated for. Like many great cities in the United States, Los Angeles has its fair share of problems, but there is always someone willing to help.
