In a state with so many casinos, bars, tourists, and travelers, the amount of drunken driving, and accidents that take place each year is fairly high.

In Nevada, due to the fact that there are so many travelers and tourists, there is also a high number of drug transactions, and illegal street sales that take place. Some of the most highly sold, and commonly purchased drugs, include: heroin, cocaine, marijuana, and other opiate based drugs. Due to the fact that individuals are only visiting the region for a couple days time, many of the travelers to the area do engage in these illegal activities, and although there are many street busts (due to undercover cops and federal agents in the state of Nevada), there are also many drug sales and street transactions that are not caught by the state or federal police. So, there is a high market for the purchase and sale of drugs in the state, and many transactions tend to take place by the popular tourist attractions, casinos, and many of the live shows which take place on a nightly basis in the state.
