Austin is full of Drugs?
Humm… That's odd. Must be the hippy crowd I'm not aware of.
Just remember TX is a red state. It's just a fact.
Austin, DFW, and Houston are basically little blue islands in a waterworld of Red. You'll actually be right at home just about any medium sized city on the I35 corridor.
If you are indeed moving to TX; just remember not to make a judgement call based upon what others tell you.
Texas is like a whole other country.
