English translation:scene(s) depicting a drug overdose
Explanation:
I assume it's an erratum for "OD scene(s)."

The sentence means that it makes sense that the overdose scene(s) in \"Less Than Zero\" took place in Palm Springs. The implication is that there is a lot of heavy drug use in that California town.

agree  J. Leo: But the implication could be referring to something else about Palm Springs which would be enlightened with more context.
