The man was taken to hospital from a house in the Ross Street area, just off the lower Falls Road, on Tuesday morning.
He died a short time later.
Police are awaiting the results of a post-mortem and toxicology reports.
Investigations are ongoing, however, police have said they are not considering a link to liquid ecstasy in connection with the death.
In addition investigating officers are not investigating any drug related deaths in the west Belfast area in the last 24 hours.
The clarification came after police attended a multi-agency meeting on Thursday afternoon in the lower Falls area where the issue of drugs was discussed.
Community representatives present expressed concerns following the sudden death of the 30-year-old man.
Police advised the representatives that investigations into the death were ongoing and at an early stage therefore it would be inappropriate to comment further.
A spokeswoman added: "Police are committed to working with all partners including the Public Health Agency to tackle drug issues and we would encourage anyone with information in relation to the sale or supply of drugs to contact police on 0845 600 8000 or contact the independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111."
Sinn Féin MLA for West Belfast Fra McCann said: "The sudden death of a young man in the lower falls area has left a community shocked and his family devastated.
"As their local representative I have been contacted to convey that the family would ask that their privacy be respected at this difficult time."
