We've traveled a zillion times to New Orleans without incident..... But last week I was a taken a little off guard when I was approached not once, but twice by 2 different men in 2 different places and was asked to buy coccaine. My husband was also approached by one of these guys.
My hubby returned today for a business meeting and is out right now and has been approached 3 times tonight in 3 different places and asked to buy both weed and coke. These men even open their palms with the little bags and flash it when asking!
In all the cases the young men are friendly and act like they're just there for fun but then once you're on to them and observe, you can see that they are just working the room looking for bites.
They are nice enough and say ok and will leave you alone when you decline, but its troubling to me that it's happened 5 times in less than a week to us!!!
I know drugs have always been around there, but it seems like something is going on and I feel the need to warn others so they aren't taken off guard because this has happened at popular places that we all frequent and recommend on this forum often:(
