I live in Florida but I work in Lousiana and have done so for years and I can tell you that Lousiana is not so much a state or a geographical entity as a scheme to separate you from your money as fast as possible.

I can assure you that you will be cheated, threatened, or otherwise taken advantage of within a year of arrival. Also, the people are largely ignorant, insular, and violent; the whole "Southern Hospitality" bit is a sham. The whole lower half of Lousiana is VERY dirty and the "if you ain't a coonas, you ain't ****" attitude is pretty grating after a while.

On the other hand if you have oxycontin, lortabs, or methamphetamines to trade to the locals, you can get anything you want as long as you give the local police a cut.

Just telling you what I've observed for the last ten years. Good luck!
