Those people "selling drugs" downtown are selling fake drugs, that's why they never get arrested. And be careful because although you may only see 1 or 2 of them out there, they are a large group of over 10 big dudes who will become very aggressive, very quickly.
If you're a woman you will get catcalled a lot in Lisbon. Careful with short skirts in crowded bar areas like Bairro Alto, Cais do Sodré and Santos because dudes will try to put their hands underneath. Sometimes groups of shitheads will to it on purpose in front of boyfriends or other male friends of the girl in question, to get a reaction and start a fight.
Taxi drivers will try to trick you, specially at the airport, so get an Uber instead.
Pickpockets love to go on trams and very touristy spots downtown. They are mostly foreign women who look harmless.
Muggings are super common in Lisbon at night, specially if you are a teenager or in your 20s. It starts with a "do you have a lighter/cigarette" and ends with you without a phone and money. No point trying to be tough, you'll end up with a bruised face and still no phone and no money. The best is to talk your way out of it, be friendly but assertive and just keep walking, don't stop in the middle of the street when you get approached, keep walking.
You're a lot less likely to be mugged if you're in your 30's or older.
Places like Anjos and Intendente have a nice art scene and nightlife but also a lot of junkies and prostitutes, so stay on the main hipster roads, specially at night.
Beato has some really cool spots too but if you start exploring the area on your own you'll quickly end up in really dodgy places even during the day.
Look where you step, there's always dog poop around > a different kind of crime, mostly against your shoes.
If you're just visiting, a taxi app may be a better option than public transport. They are inexpensive and safe, while trains/trams/buses are crawling with pickpockets.
Muggings are less common, but I've heard they happen. Though they can easily be avoided by staying away from isolated areas.
