Trucks sit in a parking lot outside one of many newer multi-story hotels in Williston, N.D. on Tuesday, Feb. 25, 2014. Williston is the hub for the Bakken shale fields oil boom in North Dakota. Because of a housing shortage, the hotels often serve as temporary housing for oil workers. Big money is raining down in small towns. But the bonanza suddenly flourishing here has also brought with it a dark side: a growing trade in meth, heroin, cocaine and marijuana, drug cartels and newfound violence. (AP Photo/Martha Irvine)
