Is drug culture still prevelant in Miami?
Posted 31 May 2013 - 02:11 PM
I ask just because I'm wondering if setting the next GTA would make any sense if it was in Vice City, modern day.

The "scene" was glamorized in movies and the TV show "Miami Vice"-- Miami probably isn't/wasn't any better or worse then other major cities in the US...

That is false, my friend. There's a reason why they had the idea to film all those cocaine-crime-based movies in Miami, it wasn't just the beach vibe. I'd suggest everyone watching Cocaine Cowboys if you're truly interested in this topic:

I'm not saying it wasn't bad in Miami-- ALOT of Cocaine went through that city- Oakland (CA) Vice just doesn't sound as good as Miami Vice---

|I imagine so, because it's near Cuba, and illegal immigration is still a huge problem. Television, movies, and games do exaggerate things, but it's the most convenient U.S. State for drug trafficking. If R* made a new game in Vice City, the story line would probably revolve around drugs again, because that's what crime in Miami is: Drugs.|
Pretty much what you said, cocaine is commonly depicted as the drug of Miami.

I couldn't tell you exactly, but I know that nowadays most drugs are smuggled across the Mexican border, compared to the eighties where most of it was smuggled through caribbean routes. I'd assume it's not the trafficking hub it is, but I don't know how it compares in regards to drug users.
