No man that is not true, once you get there, mind your business, obey the rules and law, you will be fine. Police have right to ask you for passport at anytime and anywhere, but what passport actually means to them, is ID. I never carry my International Passport with me I always leave it in my luggage(locked of course) because I might loose it, but please don't follow my example. Make a copy with your Visa and carry it with you, of course you must have your ID with you at all times. Avoid crowded places such are night clubs, etc...lots of narcotics, if there is a raid they round up everybody, doesn't matter who and where you from, you are up for big trouble until everything's settled. Then, you might have to pay money to get out of it, unless, you know someone in position there who might save your black Arab ass. Have fun and keep us posted about your trip :)

I usually follow what Albanese wrote in other countries I visit. Carry a copy of my passport and visa if it is in the passport.
However, you must carry your passport and a slip of registration from hotel with you all the times. Also, the local citizen must carry at all times as well.
It is a very safe country, police are everywhere, and you are almost guaranteed to be asked questions if your are going to go in the train. They are just checking your paperwork.
If you obey the law, and carry your documents no problem. I have been to many night clubs, I mean almost all of them in Tashkent. I dont see drug problems. I am not saying they dont have drugs. I know the owners, security guards etc. The clubs are known to have fights, I mean pretty bad fights on a routine basis. It is usually uzbek men, getting little bit too much of a drinks, and the fights are usually very bad, and extremely lengthy, the verbal abuse can last a while, followed by physical fight. This is also the problem not only local night clubs, but also tourist area clubs.
I have a friend, and he is guaranteed to pick a fight, when we go out. I guess it is just to show of macho-ism.
