Loaded with a vibrant Native American past, South Dakota is a truly unique state. It is the home of the Lakota and Dakota Sioux tribes, two large groups that still live in the area today. Fans of nature will appreciate the state’s beautiful natural landscapes, including the Black Hills, Mount Rushmore, and Badlands National Park.
Unfortunately, with its isolated setting, South Dakota has become home to drug abuse. Among the state’s rural counties and small towns, drug use has begun to flourish. In particular, because of its central location in the mid-west, it’s become a regional distribution center for drugs like meth, cocaine, and marijuana.
