I-85 runs north-south through the middle of Atlanta, bisecting I-285 and dividing the city into the Eastside and Westside. It also serves as a major artery for drug traffic, connecting Atlanta’s dealers to suppliers in Montgomery to the south and Charlotte and Richmond to the north (where I-85 connects with I-95 to get to DC, Philly, NYC, Boston, and even Maine — don’t scoff, there’s a whole crazy drug scene in Maine!)
