"Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, religion and morality are indispensable supports. In vain would that man claim tribute to patriotism who should labor to subvert these great pillars of human happiness -- these firmest props of the duties of men and citizens. . . . reason and experience both forbid us to expect that national morality can prevail in exclusion of religious principles."
George Washington

Could it be because Nevada has Vegas?  :whistle:

Quote
One 2002 study found that Russian socialists were significantly more likely than anti-socialists to drink alcohol frequently. Another 2006 survey of Belarus, Russia, and Ukraine found that adults with anti-communist views were less likely to drink, smoke, or take drugs than their pro-communist peers.

As for that - old habits die hard. If you were anti-communist, you kept your damned mouth shut about it. Kind of hard to avoid jumping on the table and shouting your views when you are hammered out of your mind. If your views jibe with the rulers, hey, go ahead and take the edge off. You're safe.

They do. Prefer hashish though, it's easier to get since the volume is much smaller to bring in. Opium is also popular.
