Fifty-two names of mainly young people have been circulated on a page in west Belfast.
It has led to concern in the area, with numerous parents calling Falls Community Council in fear over the safety of their children.
One mother who spoke to UTV didn't even want her voice recorded in case it identified her.
She said her teenage son is afraid to leave his bedroom since discovering his name - along with five of his young friends - have all been listed.
Members of the Falls community drugs programme have met to discuss the sheet, which says 'community alert, active drug dealers operating in west Belfast'.
No group has claimed responsibility but dissident republicans are being blamed.
Sinn Féin MP for the area Paul Maskey condemned the "bogus list" and said those behind it are "extremely reckless".
He continued: "I've seen this list yesterday, it was put through a number of people's doors and also on social media sites.
"This is totally unacceptable. There has been a number of people who came to ourselves, and said that they have a similar name to one of those names on the list and that they are totally anti-drugs, they're not involved in drugs, never have been and never will be.
"No organisation has claimed that they've put it out, however they've said they've taken the information from those in the drug trade.
"How is that supposed to be correct or how is anyone supposed to believe that?"
No-one from the PSNI was available for interview but in a statement a spokesman said they are aware of this list and are in possession of a copy.
They said: "Officers would urge anyone who may have any evidence of illegal activity to bring that information to the police."
